- Homework Statement
- An atom with a single electron is in a heat bath at a temperature of T6 = 1. The atom is high Z, so the electron is bound at this temperature, and only three states have appreciable occupations. The ground state has spin 5/2. The first excited state, at 210 eV, has spin 3/2. The second excited state, at 380 eV, has spin 3/2. What are the occupation probabilities for these three states?

- Relevant Equations
- occup is proportional to [gi x exp(-Ei/kT)]

where gi is the numver of states at energy Ei

occup is proportional to [gi x exp(-Ei/kT)]

where gi is the numver of states at energy Ei

where gi is the numver of states at energy Ei
