What is spin in quantum mechanics?
Spin in Quantum Mechanics:
Within the quantum mechanics framework, spin is defined as an intrinsic property of all sub-atomic particles (such as electrons, positrons, muons, hadrons, and atomic nuclei) and can be viewed as seld-angular momentum process.
Answer and Explanation: 1
The concept of spin was initially devised as a self-rotation of a particle around an axis. Spin is the fourth number of the set of quantum numbers...
