radial function of the 4s orbital

Submitted by Barbara Reisner, James Madison University

This fall, I went to plot the radial probability function of the 4s orbital and realized that I couldn't find the radial function of the 4s orbital in any of my chemistry (or physics) books. I asked a p-chemist friend for help and we realized that every book that the two of us owns only plots the orbitals to a value of principle quantum number n=3. A google search actually wasn't a lot of help.
