One of the reasons I've been so stumped about learning about angular momentum in QM, is that in my classical physics class we only applied it to circular motions. Hence, while I am aware that angular momentum is connected to spherical harmonics, the orbital shapes (besides s) isn't really circular motion to me. Can someone clarify this for me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
