Nuclear magneton

The nuclear magneton (symbol <math>\mu_p</math>), is a physical constant of magnetic moment[?], defined by:

<math>\mu_p = {{e \hbar} \over {2 m_p}}</math>
<math>e</math> is the elementary charge,
<math>\hbar</math> is the Dirac's constant,
<math>m_p</math> is the proton rest mass

In the SI system of units it's value is approximately:

<math>\mu_p</math> = 5.050 786 6(17) 10-24 JT-1

See also proton magnetic moment[?].
