For,[tex] \Psi_{321} [/tex], calculate the probabily of finding the electron inside the region defined by a thin cylinder of radius .10a and length 10a, where a is the Bohr radius.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Little lost on this one.

What I do know/think, is that because it is a thin cylinder, dr is negligible, so r can just be substituited for [tex] \Psi_{321} [/tex]. But what about [tex] \phi [/tex] ? Can [tex]2\pi[/tex] just be substituited also? And I'm assuming dz gets integrated from 0 to 10a.

Please shed some light. :)
