COMMENTS

The wave function of the 1s orbital of the hydrogen atom is psi(r)=exp(r/a0)/(sqrt(Pi*a0^3)) where a0 is the Bohr radius A003671. The radial distribution function is psi^2(r)*4*Pi*r^2 which then simplifies to 4*r^2*exp(2r/a0)/a0^3. Integrating from 0 to infinity and finding the value R where the value inside is the same as outside yields a0 times the root of 2 + 4R + 4R^2 = e^(2R).
