The magnetic quantum number has the integer values between -[n.sub.[rho]] and [n.sub.[rho]] too.
Neglect of the effect of electron spin yields a variation of the energy of the atom linearly proportional to magnetic quantum number m, considered to be the normal Zeeman effect, but in practice the energy of interaction of the electron spin with its motion about the atomic nucleus is larger than the energy change due to the external magnetic field, up to flux density Bz = 10 T.
The fourth, or spin magnetic quantum number, can have values of 1/2 or -1/2.
