I am looking for data on the coefficient [tex]r_s[/tex], which is related to the radius of a sphere such that, for a given density of electrons, there is one electron pers sphere on average.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have seen it expressed as [tex]r_s = r/a_0[/tex] where r is the radius of the sphere and [tex]a_0[/tex] is the bohr radius. Does the coefficient have a name? Is there a resource online for reading up on it?
