Question

Show that the orbital magnetic dipole moment of a revolving electron is `(eVr)/2`

Solution

In an atom, electron revolves around the nucleus in circular motion. ‘e’ be the charge on electron. The T be the time required to complete one revolution.

`:."Period of revolution"="Circumference"/"velocity" " ":.T=(2pir)/v`

Circulating current `I=e/T" ":.I=(ev)/(2pir)`

Magnetic moment associated with electron circular loop = M = IA `:.M=(ev)/(2pir)xxpir^2`

`:.M=(evr)/2`

The direction of this magnetic moment is in to the plane of paper. Negatively charge electron is moving in anticlockwise direction leading current in clockwise direction.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
