Unformatted text preview: z component of the net angular momentum of the electron is given by L net ,z = L orb ,z + L s,z = m l h 2 π + m s h 2 π . For the maximum value of L net ,z let m l = [ m l ] max = 3 and m s = 1 2 . Thus [ L net ,z ] max = µ 3 + 1 2 ¶ h 2 π = 3 . 5 h 2 π . (f) Since the maximum value of L net ,z is given by [ m J ] max h/ 2 π with [ m J ] max = 3 . 5 (see the last part above), the number of allowed values for the z component of L net ,z is given by 2[ m J ] max + 1 = 2(3 . 5) + 1 = 8....
