# Electron's pole rotation in magnetic field

Hello everybody,

I have a (potentially strange) question. Let's say an electron enters a magnetic field; what happens with the north pole of the electron over time? At the end it will obviously be aligned with the magnetic field, but what happens before that time?
For example, would the electron's pole align according to the shortest path to do so, then keep "rotating" (if you can call it that, being a point particle), until the force of the magnetic field rotates it the opposite side again?

Can you describe the movement of the pole before it's stable?
