Unformatted text preview: m l , m s > where m l is the quantum number corresponding to the zcomponent of the angular momentum and m s is the spin quantum number. (iii) How many states are there? Group together the degenerate states among these, in the absence of spinorbit coupling. (iv) When spinorbit coupling is included, write down all possible states in the form j, m j > where j is the total angular momentum quantum number and m j is the zcomponent of the same. How many such states are there? Group together the degenerate states among these. (v) j, m j > = 5/2, 1/2> is one of the states in part (iv) of this question. This state can be written as the linear combination of certain of the nospinorbitcoupling states m l , m s > in question (ii). What are these? You dont need to find the coefficients of expansion, please just mention the states and state why....
