momento angular masculine*The reason for the Zeeman effect is that in a magnetic field, the angular momentum quantum state can undergo a displacement from degeneracy.**It turns out that, both classically and quantum mechanically, there is a close connection between a particle's magnetic moment and its angular momentum.**An equilibrium rotation rate is eventually reached where the angular momentum shed by emitting gravitational radiation matches the angular momentum being added to the pulsar by its companion star.**The orbital quantum number, l, gives the angular momentum of the electron.**The orbital angular momentum of the silver atom is actually zero, not h / 2 as presumed in the Bohr model.**He went on to work on the interaction of diatomic molecules with precessing electrons, studying the angular momentum within the molecule itself.**As the Earth's speed of rotation diminishes owing to tidal friction, its angular momentum falls.**To see how it works, consider the angular momentum or ‘spin ‘of an electron.’**They reasoned that because the wake vortices contain a lot of rotation, or angular momentum, then perhaps injecting a counteracting momentum into the wake would slow things down.**The only things they can know about the material trapped within the black hole horizon is its total mass, its total angular momentum, and its total electric charge.**Because the wheels are moving slow, the angular momentum is less and the direction of rotation is easily changed.**This transfer changes the angular momentum of the stars, and changes their separation and orbital periods.**Depending on factors such as its mass, temperature, ratio of neutrons to protons, and angular momentum, the nucleus can exhibit a range of intricate and often puzzling behaviors.**Keep in mind that as the radius of the cloud decreased, the angular momentum didn't decrease, and so the speed of the spin increased.**Since angular momentum is conserved we stay in a stable orbit.**There are four quantum numbers, n, l, m, and m s, that describe the energy levels, angular momentum, magnetic properties, and spin of the atom.**He has bombarded his samples with circularly polarized light, which contains photons with spin angular momentum.**For example, simulations could check that energy and angular momentum are conserved properly on the horizon.**The angular momentum lost by the Earth's axial rotation appears in the lunar orbit, the total angular momentum being conserved.**Bruns proved in 1887 that apart from the 10 classical integrals, 6 for the centre of gravity, 3 for angular momentum and one for energy, no others could exist.*
