**20 points extra credit:**In Chapter 9 we discussed the effect of Coulomb repulsion on the energy levels of the Helium atom. Use Mathematica to calculate the Coulomb repulsion between the electrons in the Helium atom for the following two configurations (see Figure 9.7):- The ground state of Helium (
*n*= 1,*l*= 0,*n*= 1,*l*= 0) - The first excited state of Helium (
*n*= 1,*l*= 0,*n*= 2,*l*= 0)

- Obtained the wavefunctions for each electron from Table 7.2.
- Construct the appropriate total wavefunction of the state with the proper spatial symmetry.
- The position of electron 1 is specified by 3 spatial coordinates;
the position of electron 2 is specified by 3 other spatial coordinates. The
distance between the two electrons, Δ
*r*, depends on these 6 spatial coordinates. - To calculate the Coulomb repulsion, determine the expectation value
of 1/Δ
*r*. Note: this requires and integration of over the 6 spatial coordinates.

- The ground state of Helium (
