In connection with the problem of the temperature of the solar corona the energy loss of the electrons due to free-free, free-bound, and bound-bound radiation is discussed and calculated. It is shown that these energy losses are by far too small to account for a factor of two between the apparent temperature of the ions and electrons. Therefore, in the second part, it is assumed that these two temperatures are equal and that the observed density gradient and the observed line-widths of the ions… Expand
