Can (quantum) angular momentum $L$ be zero?

I am trying to calculate the orbital magnetic moment, $\bar{\mu}$, for Sodium, which has an electron configuration of $1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^1$. The full shells do not contribute to $\bar{L}$ and ...

QM interpretation of Larmor precession

Typically when I think of a spin moment in an external field, I visualize it classically in terms of a magnetic moment precessing around the external field vector. Now how is this described quantum ...
