Description: The hydrogenic (unscreened coulomb) free-free gaunt factors are computed for a wide range of initial energies and photon frequencies. In addition, an average over initial energies with the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution is performed to give the temperatureaveraged gaunt factors for use in opacity calculations. These are presented as functions of Z/sup 2//kT and h nu /kT. The relation between these gaunt factors and the rate of bremsstrahlung energy production is given, as is the total energy emitted as a function of Z/sup 2//kT. (auth)
