Lecture 12, p2 Midterm Exam Formula sheets: It has been pointed out that the formula sheet in the discussion problem book (dated Fall 2009) is not the same as the one in the Lecture Notes book (dated Fall 2010). The content is the same, but the layout is different. For exams, we will use the Fall 2010 (Lecture Notes) version. Exam rooms: Your exam room is determined by your discussion section. Go to the room indicated on the “Midterm Exam Rooms” web page: http://online.physics.uiuc.edu/courses/phys213/fall10/hexamrooms.html

Lecture 12, p5 The magnetic moment of the electron is μ B = 9.28 × 10 -24 J/T . 1 ) At room temperature ( 300 K ), what magnetic field is required to make 2/3 of the electrons have their magnetic moments point along B (that’s the low energy state)? Note: This is called the “up” state. 2 ) What B is needed for 2/3 of the protons ( μ p = 1.41 × 10 -26 J/T ) to be that way? Exercise: Spin alignment
