Bohr Magneton

  1. May 2, 2015 #1
    Hi everybody; I am triying to calculate the Bohr Magneton (eħ/2mc); I am suposed to express it in units of MeV/ Gauss, but I have not idea how to transform charge/time, which is what I obtain when I introduce the units in the formula.
    Can anyone help plase?
    Thanks.

    You can use the relation 1 C = 1 A × 1s.

    But since you need to have units of magnetic field, you can use the conversion 1 Gauss = 10-4 kg C-1 s-1.

    Allright I'll try that. Thanks.
