Wave Function

Q. Consider the wavefunction. The symbol a0 represents a defined distance of 52.9 pm; r is the distance of the electron from the nucleus. Consider portion of the equation before the exponential term: Is this first term dependent on some aspect of the electron's position, or it is a constant?
