Quiz #11d [10 pts] Consider a hydrogen atom in an orbital anglular momentum state of l=3. a. [5 pts] What is the minimum angle between L and the z-axis? b. [5 pts] What is the maximum angle between L and the z-axis? For l = 3 the total angular momentum is L = l l 1 ħ = 3 3 1 ħ = 12 ħ the z-component of the angular momentum given by, L cos = L z = mħ where m is an integer varying from − 3 to 3
