## Homework Statement

Calculate the energy splitting of the magnetic sub levels of a

^{3}S

_{1}term in a magnetic field of 1.5 T.

## The Attempt at a Solution

From the term symbol

^{3}S

_{1}I can conclude:

S -> L=0

subscript 1 -> J=1

superscript 3 -> 3=2S+1 -> S=1

Therefore I have two electrons with spin +1/2 so the corresponding electron configuration is

1s

^{1}2s

^{1}

I know that Electron in an magnetic filed has potential energy:

E=μ*B , where μ=-g

_{s}μ

_{b}*S/hbar

But I don't know how to calculate the splitting in energy from this.
