Problem 4. Pressure in a composite plasma a) Calculate the mean molecular weight in a fully ionized plasma that consists of 60% 12 C, 25% 14 N and 15% 160, by number. b) Calculate the ratio of the pressure in the plasma specified in part a) to the pressure of a plasma with solar abundance X = 0.707, Y = 0.274 at the same temperature T and density p (in g cm-3), if the plasma is non-degenerate. c) Calculate the ratio of the pressure in the plasma specified in part a) to the pressure of a plasma with solar abundance X = 0.707, Y = 0.274 at the same temperature T and density p (in g cm-3), if the electrons in the plasma are completely relativistically degenerate.
