Wavelength and Zeeman Lines

What is the wave length of those three kinds of Zeeman lines emitted when the electron had occurred the transition from 3d(n=3, l=2) to 2p(n=2, l=1) about the hydrogen atom in the magnetic field of 10,000 gauss.

*In the 3d(n=3, l=2) to 2p(n=2, l=1), l means lowercase of L.

Solution Summary

This solution defines the Zeeman effect and finds out what the wavelength of the three kinds of lines emitted from a hydrogen atom in a magnetic field. All calculations are shown in a stepwise manner with explanations.
