```I am solving the following Differential Equation

Phi''[r]+2*r^(-1)Phi'[r]+0.104479*Phi[r]==0 and Phi==K (some
constant)   ; kinda has a cos/sin solution

2.71828^(-0.323232 \[ImaginaryI] r) ((0.+
0. \[ImaginaryI]) + (0.+ 0. \[ImaginaryI]) 2.71828^(
0.646465 \[ImaginaryI] r) + (0.+ 1.54687 \[ImaginaryI]) K - (0.+
1.54687 \[ImaginaryI]) 2.71828^(0.646465 \[ImaginaryI] r) K)

all divided by r.

My problem is that Mathematica is not treating those "zeros".... as
well zeros. Thus, the solution cannot really be used. In fact, if I
manually reproduce the solution and remove those "zeros", then the
solution is fine.

I have another similar ODE Anyone have any ideas.

Phi''[r]+2*r^(-1)Phi'[r]- 287.31*Phi[r]==0 and Phi[3R]==0(some
constant)  ; kinda has a cosh/sinh solution

As you might have notice I need to match these two solutions and their
derivatives at some point.  The ratio of which gives me what I desire
the value of R.

Yet, Mathematica treats those "zeros" as something else.
