- Homework Statement:
Imagine you find a sample of hydrogen gas which is 50% ionized (ie n+/(n+ + n0) = 0.5 orn+/n0 = 1) at a temperature T = 10, 000 K.
(a) What fraction of the gas would be ionized (or what would n
+/n0 be) if there were twice as much
hydrogen in the same volume?
(b) What fraction of the gas would be ionized (or what would n
+/n0 be) if the temperature were
reduced to T = 5, 000 K (and the amount of hydrogen weren’t changed)?
(The question is in the image attached.)

- Saha equation
I have no clue. I am stuck. I would appreciate If someone could help me out. I just know I need to use the Saha equation.
