Problem: Consider an electron in the state n = 4, l = 3, m = 2, s = 1/2.What is the orbital angular momentum L of this electron?

FREE Expert Solution

The orbital angular momentum is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{L}}{\mathbf{=}}\overline{)\mathbf{h}}\sqrt{\mathbf{l}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{l}\mathbf{+}\mathbf{1}\mathbf{\right)}}}$
