I don't think you need quantum mechanics to understand what's going on in dipole-induced dipole interaction. The basic mechanism is quite simple and just the details of the calculations change by switching to a quantum description. Polarizable molecule in an external field So first things first. Let us consider a simple model of polarizable molecule as ...

i searched for the exact same problem recently after a debate with one of my colleagues. In my opinion, you already gave the answer to your question yourself. A source dipole is the flow field resulting from a sink and a source brought together. In a sink, all streamlines point radially inward to the singularity at the origin, in a source, all point ...

Your expression "the angular momentum is $m_j \hbar$" (where $\hbar = h/2 \pi$) is incorrect. This quantity is the projection of the angular momentum on the $z$-axis; it represents the direction of the spin. This is why it corresponds to the $m$ quantum number, not the $\ell$ quantum number in the $| n \ell m \rangle$ basis. Which angular momentum to use ...

Monopoles: Either north or south pole alone. Dipoles: Both north and south pole in each other's influence The Magnetic field of lines originate from North Pole and end at south pole. Gauss's law of Magnetostatics states that total magnetic flux from a closed surface is zero. That is number of incoming field line equals the number of outgoing lines. I.E. ...
