## Main Question or Discussion Point

Okay, this is a really basic question. I'm just learning the basics of QM now.

I can't wrap my head around the idea that the radial distribution function goes to zero as r-->0 but that the probability density as at a maximum as r-->zero. How can this be? they are opposite to each other!

Thanks!
