Magnetic moment of a deutron is 0.8574 u_n

  1. Jan 20, 2009 #1
    The magnetic moment of a deutron is 0.8574 u_n.Its ground state wave function is taken to be a mixture of S and D states.the expectation values of z-component of the magnetic mment in pure S and pure D states are 0.8797u_n and 0.3101u_n respectively.What is he contribution of the D state to the mixed ground state ? (This one's a question from a competetive exam...don't know if it should have been posted in the homework's section??)

    Re: Probability

    yes, it should - it will be moved.

    And you should also show your attempt to solution.
