    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    calculate the correction to the energy of the ground state of the hydrogen atom due to the finite size of the nucleus treating the nuclear charge as a thin shell of radius r0.

    I posted this not that long ago, i know what to do but i just cant figure out what the perturbation is, so any help in finding what the perturbation is will be very very helpful

    thanks

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
