Problem

What is the value of E in the figure below that would correspond to the absorption of a photon of radiation with frequency 465 MHz ?

a) No external magnetic field.  A diagram shows an electron spinning clockwise with S above and N below, while an electron spinning counterclockwise has N above and S below.  Both are at the same energy. b) External magnetic field applied.  A diagram shows the same electrons, but with an external magnetic field, the clockwise electron (S above, N below) is at an increased energy and the counterclockwise electron (N above, S below) is at a somewhat decreased energy.  The difference in energy is delta-E.
