A computation of the emissive power per atom of hydrogen for spontaneous emission into the continuous spectrum lying between the L and M edges. The results are quoted for temperatures between 3 and 30 ev and densities between 10** and 10** atoms pes pes pes pes per cubic centimeter. It is shown that under the stated thermodynamic conditions the complicating effect of free electron screening and bound electron screening may be neglected.
