What is the normalized ground-state energy eigenfunction for the three-dimensional harmonic oscillator(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

V(r) = 1/2 m* ω^2 * r^2

Use seperation of varaibles strategy. Express the wave function in spherical coordinates. What is the orbital angualar momentum of the ground state? Explain?

I am having a lot of trouble even knowing where to start. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
