comment What does ''population'' mean in regards to the excited and ground states of an atom?
If $P_0$ is the population of the ground state and $P_1$ is the population of the first excited state it's asking for the ratio $P_1/P_0$.

comment Adsorption of polar molecules
Clean glass is very polar, and ethanol is reasonably polar so I would expect adsorption of ethanol on glass to be far stronger than say butane on glass. Note however that unless you've used chromic acid on your glass, or plasma cleaned it, the glass surface will be covered in a layer of lipid adsorbed from, well, anything organic in the vicinity including you.
