Sorry in advance my english, I tried to translate it to english as good as I can(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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.

2. Relevant 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]

3. The attempt at a solution

I've attempted substituting the given R(r) to the radial equation, but I cant 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?
