I have just come to learn (Physics, with modern physics, Richard Wolfson, J M. Pasachoff, second edition) that not only angular momentum's magnitude is quantized, but also its direction.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Its given that, Cos[tex]\theta[/tex]_{min}= l / [tex]\sqrt{l(l+1)}[/tex]

Telling that, [tex]\theta[/tex]_{min}is the minimum angle between any orbital angular momentum (l) and any arbitrary chosen axis.

How can the orbital angular momentum always make certain minimum angle [tex]\theta[/tex]_{min}with anyarbitrarilychosen axis???

What if my chosen axis happens (by chance) to be the same axis of the orbital angular momentum?
