    Question: The electron in the 1s configuration of a hydrogen atom is described by the wave function. Please view the attached file for the function expression.

    The nuclear charge is suddenly changed to Z = 2 and the stationary states of this one-electron system are (Please see the attachment). Does the orbital angular momentum change? Give an expression for the probability that the electron's energy does not change, explaining your reasoning.
