Apart from factors of the order of unity, the transition probability for magnetic

the transition rate falls off rapidly with increasing

frequency.

Apart from factors of the order of unity, the transition probability for magnetic

**multipoles**is, according to (16.102), ... that in the long-wavelength limit (ka & 1)the transition rate falls off rapidly with increasing

**multipole**order, for a fixedfrequency.
