Radial Wavefunction of a Hydrogen Atom

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Gibson T. Maglasang and John Paul Aseniero In this article, we outlined the necessary steps in calculating the radial wavefunctions [eq]R_{nl}[/eq] for the Hydrogen atom. Thus, the radial wavefunctions particularly [eq]R_{30 [/eq], [eq]R_{31 [/eq] and [eq]R_{32 [/eq] are easily obtained  without bothering to normalize it. We use the formula below to find the wavefunction, [eq]R_{nl}=\frac{1}{r}\rho^{l+1}e^{-\rho}\nu(\rho),[/eq] […]

The Birth of Quantum Mechanics

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

” The Heisenberg-Bohr concepts leave us all breathless, and have made a deep impression on all theoretically oriented people.”           -Albert Einstein, 1926 The period 1905 to 1925 was a great time for the world’s leading physicists in the race to understand the quantum nature of matter. To explain so many curious and undigestible phenomena about radiation, […]
