Abstract: The N- dimensional radial Schrödinger equation with an extended Cornell potential is solved. The analytical exact iteration method (AEIM) is applied. The energy eigenvalues are calculated in the N –dimensional space. The charmonium meson, the bottomonium meson and the meson masses are calculated in the N-dimensional space. The special cases are obtained from the general case. The study of the effect of dimensionality number is studied. The mean value of the radius and the mean square velocity of charmonium meson, bottomonium meson, and meson are calculated. The present results are improved in comparison with other recent studies and are in good agreement with the experimental data. Therefore, the present method with the present potential gives successfully description of heavy quarkonium properties.

Studying heavy quarkonium systems such as charmonium meson, bottomonium meson, and meson have a vital role for comprehension the quantitative tests of (QCD) and the standard model . The study of these systems is very important. A lot of heavy quarkonium systems can be studied within the Schrödinger equation .
The solution of Schrödinger equation with spherically symmetric potential is one of the important problems in physics. It plays a large vital role for spectroscopy, atoms, molecules, and nuclei, in particular, the properties of constituents particles and dynamics of their interactions.
Several papers have focused on the study of multi-dimensional space or N-dimensional space . The study of multi-dimensional space problems is more general, and it can easily obtain the results in the lower dimensional space . The effect of the N-dimensional space is studied on the energy levels of quantum mechanical systems . The Hydrogen atom  and the harmonic oscillator  have been studied in the N-dimensional space. In addition, other potentials have been solved in the N-dimensional space such as Coulomb potential , Psedoharmonic potential , Kratzer potential , Hulthen potential , Poschl-Teller potential , Mie-type potential , energy dependent potential , forth-order inverse power potential , Hua potential , global potential , and Cornell potential .
Schrödinger equation has been solved by using numerous methods such as quasi-linearization method (QLM) , Hill determinant method , point canonical transformation (PCT) , and numerical methods [23-25]. The N-dimensional Schrödinger equation is solved by the Nikiforov-Uvarov (UV) method [5,11,14], (AIM) method , Laplace Transform method [3,8], (SUSQM) method , power series technique , and Pekeris type approximation [16,28].
In this paper, we consider the confining potential is the extended Cornell potential .
The aim of this paper is to calculate the solutions of the N-radial Schrodinger equation using the analytical exact iteration method (AEIM) [19,29,30]. Additionally, the present results are applied on quarkonium properties in comparison with experimental data and other recent studies.
The paper is organized as follows: In Sec. 2, the exact solution of the N-dimensional radial Schrödinger equation is derived. In Sec.3, the results are discussed. In Sec. 4, summary and conclusion are presented.

Using the simplifications:
Eq. (4) reduces to

From Eq. (7), we obtain
Comparing Eqs. (6) and (9) yields
At n=0, By substituting Eqs. (8) into Eq. (10) gives
By comparing the corresponding powers of r on both sides of Eq. (11), one obtains

3. Discussion of Results
3.1. Mass Spectra of Heavy Quarkonia in the N-dimensional Space
In this section, the properties of charmonuim meson, bottomonium meson, and meson are calculated, in which the quarkonium meson have quark and antiquark masses. The following relation  is used for determining quarkonium masses in the N-dimensional space
By substituting Eq. (30) into Eq. (31), the quarkonium mass in the N-dimensional space takes the following form
Thus, the charmonium mass is given by:
Similarly, the bottomonium mass is calculated from Eq. (33) by replacing
We choose the positive sign in Eq. (33) in the present computations as in Refs. [4,31]. The free parameters of the present computations a, b and d are fitted with experimental data and Eq. (33). Ikhdair and Hamzavi  solved Schrodinger equation in three dimensions for the same potential of the present work and calculated the energy eigenvalues. It can easily obtain their results if we put (N=3) in Eq. (30). In addition, we apply our results to quarkonium properties. In Refs. [2,27], the potential is a special case of the present potential when we put (d = 0). Also, In Ref. , the potential is a special case of the present potential when setting (b=0 and d = 0).
In Table 1, the charmonium mass is computed from Eq. (33) in comparison with other theoretical studies [2,4,27], and the experimental data. In Ref. , the authors computed the charmonium and bottomonium masses using the power series technique for the quark-antiquark interaction potential. In Ref. , the authors computed the charmonium and bottomonium masses using the asymptotic iteration method (AIM) for the quark-antiquark interaction potential. In Ref. , the authors computed the charmonium and bottomonium masses using the Nikiforov-Uvarov (UV) method. The present results are in good agreement with experimental data and are improved in comparison with results in Refs. [2,4,27]. In Table 2, the bottomonium mass is computed. Most states of bottomonium are improved in comparison with other theoretical studies [2,4,27], and are in good agreement with experimental data. In Table 3, the meson mass is computed. The 1S state is closed with experimental data and the other states are in good agreement in comparison with Refs. [32,33,34]. The charmonium mass, the bottomonium mass, and mass increase with increasing dimensional number due to an increase in the binding energy.

In Fig. 1. The present potential is plotted as a function of distance (r) for different states for the range of distances 0.1 fm ≤ r ≤ 1 fm as in Ref. . The three curves increase with increasing distance (r). Additionally, all curves shift to upper values by increasing angular quantum number. This behavior is in agreement with Ref. .
3.2. Radius of Bound State
The mean radius and the mean square velocity of the bound states of charmonium meson, bottomonium mseon and meson are calculated by using the Virial theorem . The relation of the mean-kinetic energy and the potential energy is given by:
The present potential is, reduces
The mass relation
The mean square velocity
In Tables (4, 5, and 6). The quantities. and are computed for different states of charmonium meson, bottomonium meson and -meson from Eqs. (36) and (37). The radius of is larger than the radius of and smaller than the radius of . In addition, the values of radii of , are located in the interval 0.1 to 1 fm. This in agreement with Ref. .
4. Summary and Conclusion
In the present study, we employ the analytical exact iteration method (AEIM) for determining the energy eigenvalues and the wave functions of the multi-dimensional radial Schrödinger equation with the extended Cornell potential. The charmonium mass, bottomonium mass and meson mass are analytically obtained in the N-dimensional space and the special cases are obtained in comparison with other studies [2,4,27]. The effect of dimensional number is studied on the mass spectra of charmonium, bottomonium and meson in Tables (1, 2, and 3). Increasing dimensional number increases charmonium mass, bottomonium mass, and meson mass. The obtained results are in good agreement in comparison with Refs [2,4,27] and are in agreement with the experimental data. In addition, the mean radius and the mean square velocity of the bound states of charmonium meson, bottomonium meson and meson are computed in Tables (4, 5, and 6). The radius of is larger than the radius of and smaller than the radius of. This observation refers to one of the characteristics of quarkonium that the heavy quarkonium have smaller radii.
