## Homework Statement

We are investigating hydrogen in a plasma with the temperature 4500 ºC. Calculate the probability per atom and second for stimulated emission from 2p to 1s if the lifetime of 2p is 1.6 ns

## Homework Equations

Planks radiation law:

##\rho (f) = \frac{8* \pi h}{c^3}\frac{1}{e^{\frac{hf}{kT}} -1}## (1)

Einstein coefficients :

##A=\frac{8 \pi f^3 h}{c^3} B## (2)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I can take the inverse of the life-time to get A. Then I can just solve for B. Using that ##\lambda = 1.251*10^{-7}## (which I looked up).

I seek a unit that is per second per atom. Which I can't really get my head around.

I try to play around with the frequency density (1) but fail to find per atom. When I get "per atom" I can just multiply that with A.

Any tipps here?
