Worksheet: Electron Orbital Magnetic Dipole Moment
In this worksheet, we will practice calculating the magnetic dipole moment of atomic electrons from the spectroscopic description of their quantum states.
An electron in a hydrogen atom is in the , state.
Find the smallest angle the electron’s magnetic moment makes with the atom’s -axis. Answer to the nearest degree.
Which of the following is the projection of the electron’s magnetic moment at the smallest angle that the moment makes with the atom’s -axis? Express your answer in terms of .
