- Relevant Equations
- Not sure how relevant this equation is, but the equation below may (or may not) help:

$$\Delta E = \frac{hc}{2\mu t} \bigg(\frac{\delta}{\Delta} \bigg) = \mu_{B} B$$

I have been analyzing a set of data from a lab activity on the Zeeman effect. The data (i.e. images) gathered can be previewed via this Google drive link here.

While I am provided with the numerical data on the current (##I##), I am not provided with any data on the magnetic field. With the given data (i.e. images), I am supposed to graph areal ratios (##\delta/\Delta##) as a function of magnetic field (##B##).

Note that areal ratios (##\delta/\Delta##) are defined as the net change in area between neighboring rings (##\delta##) over the net change in area between neighboring orders (##\Delta##). These areas can be calculated by finding the "distance" of the rings in the images via a software like Gimp.

With the above information in mind, how should I find the magnetic field (##B##) and plot my graph? Or, should I use equations like ##B = \mu_{0} I## to find my answer?

Thank you for reading through this question!
