Homework Help: Spin angular momentum?

  1. Apr 29, 2007 #1
    I am new to this forum.
    Well anyway that is not important.
    My question
    Spin angular momentum[tex]=\fract{h}{2 \ pi}\sqrt{s(s+1)}[/tex] when s is [tex]\fract{-1}{2}[/tex] then isnt the spin angular momentum complex.

    What is 's' in your equation? Can it have a negative value? Review the definition of terms for this equation.
