When solving for the spherical harmonic equations of the orbital angular momentum this textbook I'm reading..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does this mean that there must be a max value of Lz which is denoted by |ll>? Normally the ket would look like |lm>, and since m is maxed at m=l then |ll> is the ket consisting of the eigenvectors for the max values of the orbital angular momentum.

Also how do we know the associated eigenvalues of Lz look like l h_bar?
