2022-06-01: What If Physics IS NOT Describing Reality?

  • 04:56: ... ask this question with a Stern   Gerlach apparatus, where the magnetic moment  of the particles interact with a magnetic field   gradient to ...

2021-07-07: Electrons DO NOT Spin

  • 02:25: ... charge moving in circles around the atom, that motion  leads to a magnetic moment - a dipole magnetic field like a tiny bar magnet. The different ...
  • 03:20: ... that sort of works is  to say that each electron has its own magnetic moment - by itself it acts like a tiny bar magnet. So you have the alignment of ...
  • 03:48: ... that has huge problems. For example, in order to produce the observed magnetic moment they’d need to be spinning  faster than the speed of light. This ...
  • 05:31: A lone electron in the outer shell of the silver atoms grants the atom a magnetic moment.
  • 05:37: ... force on the atoms that depends on the direction that these little magnetic moments are pointing  relative to that field. Those that are perfectly ...
  • 11:34: ... derive the right values of the  electron spin angular momentum and magnetic moment by looking at the energy and charge  currents in the so called ...

2020-08-24: Can Future Colliders Break the Standard Model?

  • 07:03: And there are other anomalies like the muon’s magnetic moment.

2020-07-08: Does Antimatter Explain Why There's Something Rather Than Nothing?

  • 08:50: ... anti-hydrogen is electrically neutral, it does have a small magnetic moment - like a tiny bar magnet. ALPHA introduces a new magnetic field that ...

2018-08-23: How Will the Universe End?

  • 13:46: OK, onto your comments for last week's episode on the most accurate prediction in all of science, the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron.

2018-08-15: Quantum Theory's Most Incredible Prediction

  • 04:57: It also gives you completely the wrong answer if you try to calculate the electron's magnetic moment.
  • 05:23: This difference between the quantum versus classical magnetic moments for the electron is called the G factor.
  • 11:41: So it's really the relationship between the electron magnetic moment and the fine structure constant that we're verifying.

2017-09-28: Are the Fundamental Constants Changing?

  • 05:17: Now, quantum spin gives electrons what we call a magnetic moment.
