Energies of a Bohr atom

  1. Feb 24, 2008 #1
    I have this problem to solve, but I can't seem to find the right formula. It says to use "an expression for energies of a Bohr atom in a weak magnetic field".

    I've looked in my coursebook but I can't find anything useful. Can anyone help me?

    In a weak magnetic field the term [tex]-\mu\cdot{\vec B}[/tex] gets added to the energy.
