I'm doing a take home final and wanted reassurance that i'm doing the problem right. the question involves taking <Sz>of |psi>. I know it's(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

<psi|Sz|psi>. I've never done it for a spin 2 particle which is a 5*5 matrix.Do i just take the complex conjugate of the values without switching their position within the matrices.
