if this answers your question, please hit the check next to the left of this post. If not, leave it alone or ask more questions in the comments. This is the way of SE.

One sec, trying to work out.

comment Two photons of different frequencies collide to create electron and positron
Going to be messy either way. You could do what you wanted or you could just use the conversation of energy to do this (use relativistic momentum). Minimum energy for pair production is 1.022 MeV.

might want to add the tag 'quantum mechanics' and/or 'modern physics'.

comment Why quantum mechanics?
Hey Johnny! Hope all is well. As to your question, I really feel that you can not talk about quantum mechanics in the way you envision while giving your students as solid an understanding when you approach from an experimental view point. I think the closest you could get would be to talk about the problems encountered before quantum mechanics and how quantum mechanics was realized and built after that; this would merely omit information on the experiments, equally unsatisfying. It is a tough question!

comment electrostatic potential, analytic properties
ok, the best ive gotten is that $r = 0$ is not finite. I found the general form of the integral, saw it could be written in beta functions. Hypergeometric, all the stuff was imaginary. This is no answer by any means, but I think not. Not confident enough in what I did to post an answer.

wait, this might be QFT related...?

hold on, might solve to a hypergeometric. checking now with a cohort of mine. I'll post if I get anything worthwhile

Let me see if I can't make some plots for this.

I don't see why this would NOT be finite at $r=0$...

I think the 'on wiki' part may turn some folks off. I am very interested in this question, I fear that will turn folks off.
