Description:

The two Physlets show a density plot of the Hydrogenic wavefunction and the solution to the radial equation. The word "density" refers to a method for plotting 3-D information on a two dimensional screen. Here it has nothing to do with the probability density in quantum mechanics. The radial solutions used here are the associated Laguerre polynomials scaled with a0 = 1.
