Density Plot of Radial * Polar Wave Functions

The word "density" in the title refers to a method for plotting 3-D information on a two dimensional screen.  Here it has nothing to do with the probability density in quantum mechanics.

Exercises:

  1. Independent of n, does the number of angular lobes equal the number you found in Exercise 2 of the Polar part?

  2. Independent of q, do the zero points for the amplitude in the radial direction match those of Exercise 2 of the Radial part?
