**Question 4Angular momentum eigenstatesUse this information for Questions 4-7:A particle in a central potential V(r) has a wavefunction of the form, ψ=(x+y+2z)f(r)Also, this wavefunction ψ is properly normalized, i.e. ⟨ψ∣ψ⟩=1.Rewrite the wavefunction in terms of spherical harmonics, Y**

_{lm}.In your answer, enter spherical harmonics simply as Ylm without subscripting. Also, use Ylm for all zero or positive values of m and Zlm for negative values of m. For example, enter Y21 for l=2 and m=1 and enter Z11 for l=1 and m=−1. Finally, enter the radial function f(r) simply as f.
