Stern- Gerlach (1922) Pass collimated beam through B field gradient. u༇  Force on par2cles propor2onal to z component of magne2c moment. u༇  Shows quan2zed nature of magne2c moment. u༇  In 1922 S- G observed Ag beam split into 2. u༇  o  hard to understand for just orbital angular momentum. u༇  S- G experiment helps illustrate many concepts of angular momentum in QM. 34 The Two State System u༇  With just two states, we only need 2 complex amplitudes....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
