Measuring electron spin with multiple Stern–Gerlach apparatus at an angle

To separate the two spins of electron of a particular direction, we use Stern-Gerlach apparatuses to apply a non-uniform Magnetic field. Suppose we have two identical electrons and we know their spin adds to 0, and we know their initial spin-state (for concreteness, let's say they are in the singlet configuration, $\lvert\psi\rangle=\frac{1}{\sqrt2}(\lvert\uparrow\downarrow\rangle-\lvert\downarrow\uparrow\rangle)$.

Now if we send both electrons in the same direction and measure one of them, then immediately we know the spin of the other.

My questions are:

1. If we send both electrons at 90 degrees to each other (assume the first electron is always sent in the direction of the known state), then there is no entanglement effect, since one component of spin does not affect another. Is this correct?

2. If we send both electrons at an arbitrary angle $\theta$, then there is some entanglement effect. Is this correct?

3. If the last statement is correct, how do we determine the correlation in terms of the angle and initial entangled state?

4. If the initial state is the triplet state instead of single, what effect does that have on the system?

• Presumably here you mean the relative angles of the Stern-Gerlach apparatus? At the moment it seems like you are talking about the directions in which the spins move in space. The position or velocity of the spins has no effect on the correlations. – Mark Mitchison May 18 '15 at 14:12
• Since your initial state is a scalar, the angle simply cannot affect anything. Yes, you've written it w.r.t to the z-axis single particle spin eigenstates, but to make them w.r.t the x-axis, all you have to is say "they are w.r.t to the x-axis". – JEB Apr 20 '18 at 1:57
