and Ω = 1.17 x 10^{10} rad/s

The same formula is valid in MKS units also But μ_{B} = 0.927 x 10^{ -23} A.m^{2} , B = 10^{-1 }T and :h = 1.054 x 10^{-34 }Joule sec. The answer is the same.

In the present case, the maximum force arise when is along the axis or close to it.

Then

Here . The Lande factor g is for ^{2}P_{1/2}

and

The magnetic field is given by

or

Thus

Thus the maximum force is

**Q.155. A narrow stream of vanadium atoms in the ground state ^{4}F_{3/2} is passed through a transverse strongly inhomogeneous magnetic field of length l_{1} = 5.0 cm as in the Stern-Gerlach experiment. The beam splitting is observed on a screen located at a distance l_{2 } = 15 cm from the magnet. The kinetic energy of the atoms is T = 22 MeV. At what value of the gradient of the magnetic field induction B is the distance between the extreme components of the split beam on the screen equal to δ = 2.0 mm? **

** Ans. **In the homogeneous magnetic field the atom experinces a force

Depending on the sign of /, this can be either upward or downward. Suppose the latter is true. The atom then traverses first along a parabola inside the field and, once outside, in a straight line. The total distance between extreme lines on the screen will be

Here mv is the mass of the vanadium atom. (The first term is the displacement within the field and the second term is the displacement due to the transverse velocity acquired in the magnetic field).

Thus using

we get

For vanadium atom in the ground state ^{4}F_{3/2}

using other data, and substituting

we get

This value differs from the answer given in the book by almost a factor of 10^{9}. For neutral atoms in stem Gerlach experiments, the value T = 22MeV is much too laige. A more appropriate value will be T = 22 meV i.e. 10^{9} times smaller. Then one gets the right answer.

**Q.156. Into what number of sublevels are the following terms split in a weak magnetic field: (a) ^{3}P_{0}; (b) ^{2}F_{5/2}; (c) ^{4}P_{1/2}? **

**Ans. (a) The term 3P _{ 0} does not split in weak magnetic field as it has zero total angular momentum.**

(b) The term ^{2}F_{5/2} will split into sublevels. The shift in each sublevel is given by

where and g is the Landi factor

**Ans**. (a) The term ^{1}P_{1}splits into 3 lines with M_{z} = ± 1, 0 in accordance with the formula

where

The term ^{1}S_{0} does not split in weak magnetic field. Thus the transitions between ^{1}P_{1} & ^{1}S_{0 }will result in 3 lines i.e. a normal Zeeman triplet.

(b) The term ^{2}D_{5/2} will split ot in 6 terms in accordance with the formula

Ther term ^{2}P_{3/2 }will also split into 4 lines in accordance with the above formula with

It is seen that the Z eeman splitting is auomalous as g factors are different

(c)

The term ^{3}D_{1} splits into 3 levels (g = 5 /2)

The term ^{3}P_{0} does not split. Thus the Z eeman spectrum is normal.

(d) For the 5I5 term

For the ^{5}H_{4} term

We see that the splitting in the two levels given by is the same though the number of levels is different (11 and 9). It is then easy to see that only the lines with following energies occur

The Z eeman pattern is normal

**Q.159. Determine the spectral symbol of an atomic singlet term if the total splitting of that term in a weak magnetic field of induction B = 3.0 kG amounts to ΔE = 104μeV**

**Ans**. For a singlet term S = 0, L = J, g = 1

Then the total splitting is

Substitution gives

The term is ^{1}F_{3}.

**Q.160. It is known that a spectral line λ = 612 nm of an atom is caused by a transition between singlet terms. Calculate the interval Δλ between the extreme components of that line in the magnetic field with induction B = 10.0 kG. **

**Ans.** As the spectral line is caused by transition between singlet terms, the Z eeman effect will be normal (since g = 1 for both terms). The energy difference between extreme components of the line will be 2 μ_{B }B .This must equal

Thus

When observed at right angles to the magnetic field direction, the interval between the neighbouring components of the split line is Δω = 1.32.10^{10} s ^{-1} Find the magnetic field induction B at the point where the source is located.**

**Ans.** The ^{3}P_{0 }term does not split The ^{3}D_{1} term splits into 3 lines corresponding to the shift

For the ^{2}P_{1/2} terms

and the separation between the two sublevels into which the ^{2}P_{1/2} term will split is

The ratio of the two splittings is 2 : 1.

(b) The interval between neighbouring Zeem an sublevels o f the ^{2}P_{3/2} term is The energy separation between D_{1} and D_{2} lines is (this is the natural separation of the ^{2}P them)

**Q.165. The same spectral line undergoing anomalous Zeeman splitting is observed in direction 1 and, after reflection from the mirror M (Fig. 6.9), in direction **

**2. How many Zeeman components are observed in both directions if the spectral line is caused by the transition (a) ^{2}P_{3/2 }→ ^{2}S_{1/2} ; (b) ^{3}P_{2 } → ^{3}S_{1}? **

**Ans.**The difference arises because of different selection rules in the two cases. In (1) the line is emitted perpendicular to the field. The selection rules are then

ΔM_{Z =} 0, ± 1

In (2) the light is emitted along die direction of die field. Then the selection rules are

ΔM_{Z =} ± 1

ΔM_{Z =} 0 is forbidden.

(a) In the transition

This has been considered above. In (1) we get all the six lines shown in the problem above

In (2) the line corresponding to is forbidden.

Then we get four lines

where

For the ^{3}S_{1} line, g = 2 and the energies of the sublevels are

where M_{Z =} 1, ± 0 The lines are

All energy differences are unequal because die two g values are unequal. There are then nine lines if viewed along (1) and Six lines if viewed along (2).
