(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The classically forbidden region!!!

Hi guys I am new here, i understand that you can't give me an answer at all but i am really struggling with a particular question in quantum physics.

Q) Calculate for the ground state of the hydrogen atom the probability of finding the electron in the classically forbidden region.

I know that the classically forbidden region is where the potential energy is greater than the kinetic energy, I know that in QM the probability is the square of the modulus of the wavefunction, and the potential is coulombs potential, I just cannot figure out how to work this out.

I would appreciate help in this!!

ps I know the wave function

Thanks for your time
