# bremsPowerSrc¶

Computes the Bremsstrahlung the power density loss term.

\notag \begin{align} s=\left(\frac{n_{e}}{7.69e18}\right)^{2}T_{eV}^{1/2}Z_{eff} \end{align}

Where $$n_{e}$$ is the electron number density in $$1/m^{3}$$, $$T_{eV}$$ is electron temperature in electron volts (note that the temperature is input in Kelvin), $$Z_{eff}$$ is the effective ion charge state.
