What exactly is electron spin and intrinsic spin of elementary particles.Any link teaching these concepts from scratch would also be appreciated .
Thnx
Thnx
OK, let's go backwards a bit. How much do you know about angular momentum in classical mechanics? Do you know about how to represent angular momentum as a vector?Sorry still havent understood at all!
I see, so it's just the charge that is reversed? e+ e- the spin is the same or can be the same according to an axis, thanks.No, spin is not one of the things that's "opposite" for an antiparticle. For example, an electron can already have its spin either "up" or "down" along a given axis, and likewise for a positron.
Orbital angular momentum falls out when the Schrödinger Wave Equation is solved for a Hydrogen atom.Why is the spin defined in such a way?How do we get the equation?
