We show in a unified model that the shift and width of the ultraviolet absorption line shapes in liquid helium are related to the integrated Raman-scattering cross sections. This relation is used to estimate the magnitude of the integrated s-wave scattering by use of the observed ultraviolet spectrum. We find 0.25IsId3.4 The model gives standard results for d-wave scattering. We discuss some other possible uses of the model.
