Assuming a plane-parallel atmosphere, (1) show that emission lines will appear if "j[lambda]>>1" and there is no radiation entering the atmosphere from outside. (2) Further, show that, if radiation enters from below, the relation between specific intensity and source function will determine whether emission or absorption lines are seen.

For more information on how to do this problem, and for tables of relevant data, see www.canismajor.ca.
