    I need help answering the following question:

    The energy of an electron in the p-level of an atom is changed in the presence of a magnetic field of magnatude 3.4T. What is the difference between the largest & smallest possible engergies?

    Thank you!

    I advise u take a good,strong look at the chapter treating normal Zeeman effect in the QM/Atomic physics books you're using...The answer should be simple,VERY SIMPLE.It's substituting some numbers in a simple formula.
