Energy of proton in continuum

  1. Apr 11, 2008 #1

    I am doing a beginners physics course and I am learning about free-free emissions and bound bound emissions.
    I understand that an electron can emit and absorb any amount of energy if its in the continuum and therefore free. But what about the proton? It it sits in the continuuem can it also emit and absorb any amount of energy?
