Quantum mechanical treatment of zeeman effect?
Quantum mechanics describes the Zeeman effect as the splitting of energy leves. It is caused by the so called "m" quantum number. This effectively quantises the orientation of the electrons orbit. m can take values from -n to n where n is the principle quantum number. for example if n = 1 then m = -1,0,1. The n=1, m = -1 and the n=1, m=0 quantum staes have slightly different energies and this leads to the splitting of the energy levels as observed by the Zeeman effect
