# (a) Calculate the magnitude of the angular momentum for an l = 1 electron. (b) Compare your answer to the value Bohr proposed for the n = 1 state.

To determine

(a)

The magnitude of the angular momentum for an l=1 electron

Explanation

Given Data:

Given l=1

Formula Used:

The magnitude of angular momentum is given as

â€ƒâ€ƒL=(l(l+1))(h2Ï€)

Where L= Angular momentum

â€ƒâ€ƒl= Angular momentum quantum

â€ƒâ€ƒh= Planck's constant

Calculation:

Given l=1

Magnitude of angular momentum is calculated as

â€ƒâ€ƒL=(1(1+1))(6

To determine

(b)

To compare:

The above answer to the value Bohr proposed for the n=1 state.
