    If µ = gµ_NI/hbar, then we can calculate every g-factor by throwing the rest to the other side, provided we know the magnetic moment. This yields for

    (1.a) calculate the nuclear magneton, which is µ_N = \hbar / 2m_p, with m_p the mass of the proton. We get -2.235.

    (1.b) we calculate the Bohr magneton µ_B, we then get the g-factor by throwing the knows to the other side. We get that g is -0.575 m/c^2.

    (1.c) We just follow the equation on slide 6, we then get that the magnetic moment of the neutron is -0.00102
