## Homework Statement

Consider an hydrogen atom in its ground state, what is the probability that the electron is found inside the Bohr Radius?

## Homework Equations

The probability of finding the electron at bohr radius is maximum. but the probability over the range from 0 to bohr radius, is hard to visualize.

## The Attempt at a Solution
