#### Question

An electron in an atom revolves around the nucleus in an orbit of radius 0.53 Å. If the frequency of revolution of an electron is 9 x109 MHz, calculate the orbital  angular momentum

[Given : Charge on an electron = 1.6 x 10–19 C; Gyromagnetic ratio = 8.8 x 1010 C/kg; π = 3.142]

#### Solution

Given : Charge on an electron = 1.6 x 10–19 C;
Gyromagnetic ratio = 8.8 x 1010 C/kg; π = 3.142

Formula:  L_0=M_0/"gyromagnetic ratio"

M=IA

Since I=1/T e=fe

From formula

M=feA=fepir^2

=9xx10^15xx1.6xx10^-19xxpixx(0.53xx10^-10)^2

=1.6xxpixx0.25xx10^-23

M=1.270xx10^-23 Am^2

Using formula L_0=(1.270xx10^-23)/(8.8 xx10^10)

L_0=0.1443xx10^-33 (kgm^2)/s
