Limits of integration for the radial wave function of the Hydrogen atom in the WKB approximation

I am working a problem where we have to find the energy eigenvalues for the radial wave function of the hydrogen atom for $\ell=0$ using the WKB approximation. I am sure that I set up the integral ...

In solving the hydrogen atom, how to see intuitively in advance that the spin effects to the energy spectrum can be ignored?

When the hydrogen atom is solved in QM books spin is usually ignored because its effect is to add tiny piece to the energy. My question is, is there a way to see this in advance, to see that if we ...
