I have this problem

## Homework Statement

**A source which emits a line at 500nm is found to exhibit the normal Zeeman effect**

when placed in a magnetic field. Calculate the magnetic field given that the separation

of adjacent components in the Zeeman pattern is 12.0pm.

when placed in a magnetic field. Calculate the magnetic field given that the separation

of adjacent components in the Zeeman pattern is 12.0pm.

## Homework Equations

I have this equation from my textbook

ΔE = μ

_{b}Bgm

_{j}

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am assuming that I need to use the fact given about the distance of the components in the pattern to find ΔE and then rearrange for B, but I am not sure how to do that.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
