Unformatted text preview: Physics 212 Problem Set 8 Spring 2010 1. Show that the relationship we obtained from imposing the condition that our atoms are in a steady state of thermal equilibrium at temperature T and the applied radiation field is also in thermal equilibrium at temperature T : B ij h 3 2 c 3 1 e h/kT- 1 A ji + B ji h 3 2 c 3 1 e h/kT- 1 = g j g i e- h/kT requires that g i B ij = g j B ji and A ji = h 3 2 c 3 B ji if the Einstein coefficients are independent of temperature. 2. Show that the number of photon states per unit volume per unit frequency range for radiation confined to a box is 2 2 c 3 . 3. Obtain the lifetime of the n = 2, l = 1 level of hydrogen against spontaneous decay by dipole radiation. 4. Show (I already sketched this in class; you need to justify the steps) that the ratio of the typical size of a magnetic dipole matrix element to the typical size of an electric dipole matrix element is Z , for a hydrogenic atom with Z protons. Find the ratio of a typical quadrupole matrix element to a typical electric dipole matrixprotons....
