Homework Help: Nuclear phys issue

  1. Feb 18, 2013 #1
    I have a question that states: "Consider the shell model predictions for the ground state and low lying excited states of 210 Bi (see below for sidenote).

    This is just a definition issue really. I don't know what a 'low lying' state is. I can't find that term used in my text at all. Can someone explain that to me?

    *Sorry but I don't know how to write the superscript for the above isotope of Bismuth. Does anyone know how to do that?

    This probably means the non-ground states whose excess energy is low.
