From what I understand, in a multiple electron atom, J the total angular momentum is the vector sum of the spin angular momentum and the orbital angular momentum. But what about a single electron atom (hydrogen), is the total angular momentum still equal to Lz plus Sz? Also is the total magnetic dipole moment equal to the sum of muorbz plus musz?
