Homework Help: Saha Equation. Help!

  1. Oct 15, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    From the Saha Equation, and from the assumption that three ionization stages are good enough, compute the fraction of element Fe in the neutral, first ion, and second ion species for the sun. Assume a single slab atmosphere, with T = Teff and the appropriate pressure for that temperature in the solar atmosphere.

    2. Relevant equations

    (Sorry, I'm terrible with latex)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Honestly, I missed the lecture where my Professor went over how to solve this so if someone can give me a bump in the right direction, I would be very thankful. The resources on the web aren't very good for those who haven't been introduced to it.
