Physics: Visualization of Hydrogen Wave Functions

Students explore various methods for visualizing the results of hydrogen wave function. They observe trends using a polar plot tool and make plots for the first three energy levels of the radial wave function for hydrogen. Students apply other density plot tool for additional problems and describe the shape of the most likely place to find the electron.
