The theoretical electron density sensitive emission-line ratio R = I(1718.56 Angstrom)/I(1486.51 Angstrom) in N IV is presented for a range of N-e (similar or equal to 10(10)-10(12) cm(-3)) applicable to higher density solar plasmas, such as active regions. A comparison of these calculations with the observed values of R of several solar features obtained with the Naval Research Laboratory's S082B spectrograph on board Skylab reveals general agreement between theory and observation at pointings just above the limb, where line blends with N IV 1718.56 Angstrom should be insignificant, which provides experimental support for the accuracy of the line ratio calculations.
