Recently I studied the wave equation.Then I read about quantum numbers.Now the quantum number about which I am concerned about is the Azimuthal Quantum number or the orbital angular momentum quantum . Now, can have the values
= 1 , 2 , 3, ........... , (-1)
Now I further read that for orbital = 0 . Again for a single electron magnitude of orbital angular momentum is given by
Now if we put in the above equation we get the magnitude of the orbital angular momentum .i.e., = 0
Means the electron is not at all moving around the nucleus, and still the electron doesn't fall in the nucleus ??
For a while I considered the spin angular momemntum , but it doesn't help in any way.If the electron is fixed at a point , spinning( I know spin does not literraly mean spinning on the axis like the planets.Its an intrinsic property like charge) at a point does not help either.
Further, even spin does affect it, the two electrons in the same orbital have opposite spin which would cancel out(opposite direction).
Hope I get an answer.
