Problem 14.1: Angular momentum values for an electron are shown projected on the z-x plane

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Angular momentum values for an electron are shown projected on the z-x plane (only +x projection is shown and the y axis is into the computer screen).  The units of the x and z axes are in terms of h/2π (ħ).  When the z component of angular momentum is greatest, what is the x component of the angular momentum? Restart.
