Show that the magnetic dipole moment M of an electron orbiting a proton nucleus of a hydrogen atom is related to the orbital angular momentum M=(e/2m)L

2. Homework Equations

M=NIA, Torque =MB, F=qvB=v^2/r, L=Iw=mrv=rp (where p=mv)

N=1 in this case I assume?

3. The Attempt at a Solution

I've tried every combination of everything I can think of. I started with solving for L as L=2mM/q (where q=e). Then I tried substituting everything I could think of in for L and nothing made sense. I also tried starting with M=Torque/B and substituting I*(angular acceleration) for torque but you just end up with vqr. I think I'm approaching this wrong, can anyone help.
