When sodium is bombarded with electrons accelerated through a potential difference Δ V, its x-ray spectrum contains emission peaks at 1.04 keV and 1.07 keV. Find the minimum value of Δ V required to produce both of these peaks.

The equation for the energy required to produce the peaks is given by,
E = e Δ V
Here, E is the energy peak, e is the charge of the electron and AV is the potential difference required.
Rewriting the above equation,
Δ V = E e
Substitute the numerical value in the equation to find the value of Δ V corresponding to 1.04keV.
Δ V = 1.04   k e V e = 1.04   k V
Substitute the numerical value in the equation to find the value of Δ V corresponding to 1.07 keV.
Δ V = 1.07   k e V e = 1.07   k V

I'm writing a program which generates the emission spectrum of an element with atomic number Z. To do this, I have used the equation:
1 λ = R Z 2 ( 1 n 1 2 1 n 2 2 )
Where n 1 is the number of the original energy level and n 2 is the number of the final energy level and where n 1 > n 2
However, this does not calculate the intensity of the lines. Is there anyway to model the intensity using n 1 , n 2 and/or Z, assuming that the brightest line has an intensity of 1?

When light hits an atom (I will use a carbon atom for simplicity), if it is not in the absorption and/or emission spectrum of carbon, it will simply pass through without interacting with the atom. Whereas if it is in the absorption or emission spectrum it will be absorbed and either re-emitted or it will decay to become thermal energy.
However, if there are a lot of (carbon)atoms in close proximity (like in a block of coal), the light will (obviously) not pass through it no matter where it is on the visible spectrum. Why does this happen?

I learnt that in astrophysical spectroscopy, the emission spectrum of distant stars is used to determine what they're made of. So why is it that our own Sun is emitting the whole spectrum ?
