Homework Help: Quantum physics

  1. Mar 14, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Estimate the strength of the magnetic field for which Zeeman splitting of the 3p energy
    levels in sodium equals the energy due to spin-orbit coupling

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know the equations for spin orbit and the zeeman effect, and im guessing i have to set these equal to find B, but i dont know what state i need to use, the 3p level has j=0.5 and 1.5, also i dont know what <1/r dV/dr> is for sodium.
