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.
