An electron is in the spin state

(a) Determine the constant A by normalizing χ.

(b) If you measured S_{z} on this electron, what values could you get, and what is the probability of each? What is the expectation value of S_{z}?

(c) If you measured S_{x} on this electron, what values could you get, and what is the probability of each? What is the expectation value of S_{x}?

(d) If you measured S_{y} on this electron, what values could you get, and what is the probability of each? What is the expectation value of S_{y}?
