The photonscattering by electron must depend on:(a) The electron charge, e, since, if this charge was zero, there would be nointeraction and no scattering.(b) The velocity of light, since we are dealing with an electromagnetic phenomenon.(c) The mass of the electron, me , since if the mass was infinite, the electronwould not oscillate under the action of the photon electromagnetic fieldand would not emit radiation.(d) The energy of the photon, ω.The quantity e2 /4πε0 me c2 has dimensions of length (since e2 /4πε0 r hasdimensions of energy). Hence, the cross-section, σ, is of the form σ e24πε0 me c2 2 ω,fm e c2where the function f of the dimensionless quantity ω/mec2 cannot be determined from dimensional analysis; it turns out that f (x) is a monotonicallydecreasing function of x with f (0) 8π/3, and f ( ) 0. (The formula forσ is known as the Klein–Nishina formula).Problem 1.11sThe natural linewidth, ΔE, has dimensions of energy. It must depend on:(a) The dipole moment p e · r (as suggested by the question).(b) The velocity of light, c since the decay is due to the emission of a photon.(c) The frequency of the emitted photon, since only an oscillating dipole emitsradiation.Hence, by finding the only combination of p, c, ω with dimensions ofenergy, we obtainΔE c14πε0 c3 e2 r 2 ω 3 and the lifetime tl ,34πε0 cΔEc1 e 2 r 2 ω 3where the “constant” c1 depends on the details of the initial and the finalatomic level, since actually r2 is the square of the matrix element of an appropriate projection of r between the initial and the final states. We expect that,for the transition 2p to 1s in hydrogen, r2 to be of the order of a2B . Choosing,arbitrarily, c1 1 and r2 a2B , while ω 13.6 1 14 eV 10.2 eV we findfor this transitiontl 1.17 10 9 s,while a detailed advanced calculation gives tl 1.59 10 9 s.

Solutions of Selected Problems and Answers781Problem 1.12sThe effective absolute temperature, T , would appear as the product kB T ofdimensions of energy. It must depend on:(a) The product GM , where G is the gravitational constant. The reason isthat the strong gravitational field responsible for this radiation dependson the product GM .(b) Planck’s constant , since the phenomenon is of quantum origin.(c) The velocity of light, c, since we are dealing with electromagnetic radiation.The reader may convince himself that out of GM , and c there is onlyone combination to give dimensions of energy, namely, c3 /GM . HencekB T c1 c3 /GM,where the numerical constant c1 turns out to be equal to 1/8π.Problem 1.13sIt is more convenient for dimensional analysis to employ the G-CGS system(to get rid of ε0 and μ0 ).

The latter energy is equal to minus the sum of the first and the secondionization potential of He, i.e., 24.587 54.418 eV 79 eV. To this energywe must add 2 13.6 eV to be consistent with our choice of the zero of energy.
