Quantum spin number and wave function

Postby ian_haliburton_1f » Fri Oct 26, 2018 5:22 pm

Is it correct that the values of the quantum spin number have nothing to do with the wave function? I remember the later experiment with electrons and magnetism described in the text, but how is the value 1/2 derived?

The derivation of the Spin Quantum Number is based upon the Pauli Exclusion Principle. So, although the spin number is not part of the Wave Function, it helps completely specify an e- in an atom particularly spin state.
