To find the number of degrees of freedom in the resulting HII region, do I just multiply the volume of the region times the molecular hydrogen density and then multiply by 6 to take into account the fact that the hydrogen atom gets decomposed into protons and electrons??

I have no idea how to find the number of degrees of freedom in the molecular hydrogen gas before it gets ionized. What volume would I use?
