For a particle with S = 1 in a state of Sz = 1, what are the probabilities to obtain the various values of the spin component if measured along a direction which makes an angle Q relative to the z-axis?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there a general method for an arbitrary value of S?
