(a) Using 1 3 (1.2 fm) , R A = the radii are roughly 3.6 fm, 5.3 fm, and 7.1 fm. (b) Using 2 4 R for each of the radii in part (a), the areas are 163 2 2 fm ,353fm and 2 633 fm . (c) 3 4 3 R gives 195 3 fm , 624 3 fm and 1499 3 fm . (d) The density is the same, since the volume and the mass are both proportional to A : 17 3 2.3 10 kg m 2 (see Example 43.1).

(27.27) and (41.22) and Fig.41.14 in the textbook, the state with the z component of r parallel to B r has lower energy. But, since the charge of the electron is negative, this is the state with the electron spin component antiparallel to .
