The anomalous Zeeman effect

  1. Nov 19, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Calculate the wavelengths for all the allowed transitions of the 3p to 3s states of 23Na atoms in a magnetic field of 2T.

    2. Relevant equations
    (energy splitting) V = μB B mj g
    (Lande g factor) g = 1 + {[(J(J+1)+S(S+1)-L(L+1)] / 2J(J+1)}
    dE = (hc/lambda^2) d(lambda)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know that I have to find g values for all states from 3p to 3s. But I have no clue about it.
    Then, I'm gonna find energy differences between every state and calculate the wavelengths.

    I will be very thankful if you help.
