Hypernuclei are known as the bound states of nucleons and one or more strange baryons (hyperons) so the development of their physics helps to understand the structure of nuclei and the properties of strange baryons with more precision. One important goal in the field of hypernucleus physics is the study of the interaction of hyperon-nucleon and hyperon-hyperon. In this regard, the study of hypernuclei structure can play an essential role in understanding these types of interactions. In this work, we study some important static properties of single-lambda hypernuclei (nuclei containing a -baryon) such as their binding energy and magnetic moments. For our calculation, we use the Dirac relativistic wave equation considering a spin-orbit potential and determine the analytical equation of binding energy and magnetic moments. In the following, we will determine these quantities for some light hypernuclei such as  and . Our analytical results will be compared with other theoretical results as well as available experimental data.
