interpret the results concerning the existence of ground and excited states:

a) in the center of the sun,

b) for the average density of the sun at kTe=1300 eV.

Hello,

Firstly I am not sure of understanding the problem, I believe that this reduction is related to a high density plasma where the free electrons are very close to the ions and so the ions cannot be considered as separate bodies... I also believe it affects the ground energy state of electrons inside hydrogen like atoms (helium +1).

For solving this problem I found that every solutions used the Stewart and Pyatt model. This model uses the debeye lengh. But as you can see it uses an other model... I wished I could provide more to the community to start with but I have been on this problem for hours and I cannot find annything...

Thank you for any help you may provide !
