Radiation Laws As temperature increases wavelength of maximum radiant intensity, max, increases. Weins Displacemnet Law. Sun Earth T=6000 K T=300 K

Radiation Laws As temperature increases wavelength of maximum radiant intensity, max, increases. Weins Displacemnet Law. Sun Earth

Radiation Laws As temperature increases total radiation output increases. Stefan_Boltzman Radiation Law. Brightness = Intensity Energy leaving an object each sec per square meter As T double Brightness increases by ___??____ As T triples Brightness increases by _______

Radiation Laws As temperature increases total radiation output increases. Stefan_Boltzman Radiation Law. Brightness = Intensity Energy leaving an object each sec per square meter As T double Brightness increases by 16 As T triples Brightness increases by _____

Black Body =1.0

The hole acts like a blackbody. All radiant energy is absorbed none is reflected. If the inside of the cavity were to become hot then the hole would glow.
