Hi.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In Hund's second rule, it seems that we calculate the value of L simply by summing the [itex]L_z[/itex] components of the individual electrons. But L has to do with the eigenvalue of the L^2 operator, i.e. the eigenvalue is L(L+1). So how can this be correct?
