Question 25: NCERT Solutions for 12th Class Physics: Chapter 5-Magnetism and Matter
The magnetic moment vectors
associated with the intrinsic spin angular momentum
and orbital angular momentum
respectively, of an electron are predicted by quantum theory (and verified experimentally to a high accuracy) to be given by
Which of these relations is in accordance with the result expected classically? Outline the derivation of the classical result.
Out of the two relations given, only one is in accordance with classical physics. This is
where r is the radius of the circular orbit, which the electron of mass m and charge (- e) completes in time T. Divide (i) by (ii),
of quantum mechanics.
