## Homework Statement

When [tex]l[/tex] has its maximum value, the hydrogen atom radial equation has a simple form of

R(r) = Ar

^{n-1}e

^{-r/na0}, where a

_{0}is Bohr's radius.

Write the respective radial schrödinger equation.

## Homework Equations

Radial Schrödinger Equation:

[tex]-\frac{\hbar^2}{2*\mu*r^2}*\frac{d}{dr}(r^2*\frac{dR(r)}{dr})+\left[-\frac{kZe^2}{r}+\frac{\hbar^2*l(l+1)}{2*\mu*r^2}\right]*R(r) = ER(r)[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've attempted substituting the given R(r) to the radial equation, but I can't get anything out of it that makes sense. Too long to write it here with this hard latex thing :S

Should I get some nice reduced form or can I expect some equation monster?
