Calculate the expectation value of the potential energy for an electron in a 1s orbital for a hydrogen atom
Ive determined the potential energy operator to be V=-e^{2}/4∏ε_{0}r
and a wave function of
ψ= (1/4∏)^{1/2}
therefore i get
<V> = ∫∫∫ψ*Vψr^{2}sin∅drd∅dphi
integrals from 0 to r, 0 to pi, 0 to 2pi
not sure where to go from here.
