2c2 m r dr 2m2c* r dr It is evident from (11.48) and (11.45) that the extra

contribution to the energy from the Thomas precession just reduces the spin-

coupling by a factor of J (sometimes called the Thomas factor), yielding U = - — S

(a) Using nonrelativistic approximations, show that in a hydrogen-like atom the

transition probability (reciprocal mean lifetime) for a transition from a circular

of principal quantum number n to (n — 1) is given classically by !=?f!/^!V — - T ...
