    Is the magnetic dipole moment of an electron affected by its orbital motion around the nucleus? If so, how? I already know that the magnetic dipole moment of an electron is contributed by its intrinsic property of spin.

    Read the current hydrogen atom thread and you will find the answer.

    i thought that electrons orbiting was old time thought. electrons do not really orbit the nucleus ? i thought quantum mechanics stopped this idea of orbitting ?

    Again, suggest reading the concurrent hydrogen atom thread. It's all covered there.
