wave function of a particle in one dimension

wave function of a particle in one dimension at time t=0 given by

psi(x,0) = A(x^0.5)*(e^-ax) for x>0 or x=0

psi(x,0) = 0 for x<0

where x is in nms and a = 1nm

where is the particle most likely to be found? or for what value of x is P(x) a maximum

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i first normalised it to find A=2a
