So i'm trying to use the excitation law of Boltzmann and the ionisation law of Saha to calculate stuff about what percentage of a quantity of hydrogen in ionised and in what energy state. I have the temperature and energy levels values, so i still need the:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

-statistical weight (degeneracy)

-partition function

for both neutral and ionised hydrogen. Where could i find these?

The degeneracy for neutral hydrogen is 2n^2 (n being the principal quantum number) if i am not mistaken?
