(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A hydrogen atom in the ground state can be described by the following wavefunction:

[tex]\Psi(r) = \frac{C}{\sqrt{4\pi}}e^{- \frac{r}{a_{0}}}[/tex]

Normalise this wavefunction.

3. The attempt at a solution

I did this and got:

[tex]C = \sqrt{\frac{8\pi}{a_{0}}}[/tex]

I have no way of checking this, so I was wondering if anybody could tell me whether I am right or wrong.
