The probability that the electron is between and is
So, the probability is proportional to . We can find the maximum value of the probability by differentiating with respect to and setting the derivative equal to . We can check that this is a local maximum by finding the second derivative If we plug in , we find that Therefore, is indeed a local maximum of the radial probability density function. Therefore, the correct answer is . |
