A For a collection of atoms, e.g., a gas, the percentages of the gas at each state of excitation is of interest, because of its relation to Temperature and to characteristics of the spectral lines (Line Broadening), allowing the study of spectral lines to be used to determine temperature, through the Boltzmann Equation. physics,quantum mechanics,atoms)Referenced by:
