Let the operator for the sum of 10 all z-component orbital angular momentum be å lˆ ( r ) , where r z n n is the spatial n=1 coordinates of the nth electron. Let the operator for the sum of all z-component spin 10 angular momentum be å ŝ (s ) , where s z n n is the spin coordinates of the nth electron. n=1 Show that the total z-component orbital and spin angular momenta of the neon atom are zero. Argue that the total orbital and spin angular momenta of the neon atom are also zero. 22-2.
