1. This computer visualization activity is designed to help students compute and visualize the quantum mechanical probability for finding the electron in space for the unperturbed hydrogen atom.
  2. Students use a Maple Worksheet or a Mathematica Notebook to visualize the probability density of the electron in the hydrogen atom and generate animations of the hydrogen orbitals that many of them have seen in chemistry.
  3. The whole class wrap-up discussion summarizes the solution of the Hydrogen atom with computer simulations, connecting the newly learned physics with the familiar models from introductory chemistry.
