Unformatted text preview: and direction of magnetic moment is direction of thumb) Normally, the magnetic moments are randomly oriented - BUT if you place a molecule in an external magnetic held the magnetic moments will prefer to align with or against the applied magnetic field. The term g spin state describes a situation where the magnetic moment is lined up with the applied field and B spin state describes a situation where the magnetic moment is lined up against the applied magnetic fi.eld.
