36. (a) The potential energy of the atom in association with the presence of an external magnetic field G B ext is given by Eqs. 32-31 and 32-32: orb ext orb, ext ext . zB UB B m B µµ µ =− A G For level E 1 there is no change in energy as a result of the introduction of G B ext , so U m A = 0, meaning that m A = 0 for this level. (b) For level E 2 the single level splits into a triplet (i.e., three separate ones) in the presence of G B ext , meaning that there are three different values of
