Unformatted text preview: |m l , m s > where m l is the quantum number corresponding to the z-component 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 spin-orbit coupling. (iv) When spin-orbit 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 z-component 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 no-spin-orbit-coupling 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....
