The hydrogen atom ground state may be described by the spatial wave function as:
This is where a_0 is the Bohr radius. Using the following equation, please calculate the momentum wave function.
integral[(e^(-a*r + i*b*r))*(d^(3))*(r) = 8*Pi*a/((a^(2) + b^(2))^(2))

We calculate the momentum wave function for the ground state of the hydrogen atom using the Fourier transform of the spatial wave function.
