# Prove that the normalization constant of the radial wave function of the hydrogen atom is , as given in Equations 41.7.

The normalization constant of the radial wave function of the hydrogen atom is

See the step by step solution

## Step 1 : Given information

We have to prove that the normalization constant of the radial wave function of the hydrogen atom is .

## Step 2 : Simplification

The normalization condition for the three-dimensional hydrogen atom is

(= probability density , = radial wave function , = Bohr radius)

From Equation 41.7, the radial wave function can be written . Thus,

Hence proved.
