Lande g-factor for proton

  1. Mar 3, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I know that the Lande g-factor for proton is 5.58 but I would like to derive it. Here, s=1/2, l=0 and hence j=1/2. But I don't get the required value. Moreover, we have an orbital and a spin g-factor for electrons but not for proton. Is it because protons are composite particles unlike electrons and hence more complex?

    2. Relevant equations

    g = 1 + {j(j+1) + s(s+1) – l(l+1)}/{2j(j+1)}

    3. The attempt at a solution
