Consider a ground level G and excited electronic energy level E in a molecule. The excited level has an energy that is 104 cm-1 higher than the ground level. If the temperature is 5000 K, what will be the ratio NE / NG? NE and NG are the numbers of excited and ground state molecules per cubic centimeter. Use the Boltzmann constant, kb = 0.695 cm-1/K
