    The Schrodinger Equation is an important concept in modern day quantum mechanics as there are many systems that involve wave-based particles. Atoms are an example of such a system. Please determine the expectation value of r^2 for a hydrogen atom with the following unnormalized wave function: (see the attached file for the wave function).
