1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Describe, with examples, what is meant by magnetic moment. What gives rise to a magnetic moment in a proton/neutron? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I know what a magnetic moment is, just struggling with the other parts of the question. So what I'm thinking is that an electron orbiting generates a magnetic moment since it is a charged particle moving in a circle. In the same way the spin of a nucleus generates a magnetic moment since the nucleus is comprised of charged quarks which are spinning when the proton/neutron is spinning. Is this correct?
