atomic beam of ground state hydrogen moves horizontally with velocity vx = 200 ms-1 and passes through a magnet 0.10 m long with a vertical magnetic field of gradient 1.00 T/m. How do I calculate the vertical velocity and angle deflection. Can't seem to work it out without more values.. Thanks

    Does ground-state hydrogen have a net charge?

    Ground state hydrogen doesn't have a net charge, so there is no deflection. If it would have a charge, you said that, the magnetic field is vertical, therefore it couldn't deflect vertically just horizontally. Are you sure you got this question right?

    I just copied the question in. It might be in relation to the Stern-Gerlach experiment which saw the splitting of a beam of silver when passed through a b field. It has something to do with the ±1/2 spin value right?
