    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.

    The Zeeman effect is the splitting of a spectral line by a magnetic field. The reason for the Zeeman effect is that in a magnetic field, the angular momentum quantum state can undergo a displacement from degeneracy. One state elevates in energy, one ...

    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.
