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.

Q1:

Find the magnitude of the minimum torque that acts on the orbital magnetic dipole of a 3 š‘ electron in an external magnetic field of 2 . 5 0 Ɨ 1 0 āˆ’ 3 T.

  • A 2 . 4 5 Ɨ 1 0 āˆ’ 2 1 Nā‹…m
  • B 2 . 2 3 Ɨ 1 0 āˆ’ 2 1 Nā‹…m
  • C 2 . 5 3 Ɨ 1 0 āˆ’ 2 1 Nā‹…m
  • D 2 . 3 2 Ɨ 1 0 āˆ’ 2 1 Nā‹…m
  • E 2 . 6 0 Ɨ 1 0 āˆ’ 2 1 Nā‹…m
