|How does the blackbody spectrum of the sun compare to visible light? Learn about the blackbody spectrum of the sun, a light bulb, an oven, and the earth. Adjust the temperature to see the wavelength and intensity of the spectrum change. View the color of the peak of the spectral curve.|
- Quantum Mechanics
Sample Learning Goals
- Describe what happens to the blackbody spectrum as you increase the temperature. What happens to the shape of the curve and the peak of this curve?
- What happens to the blackbody spectrum as you decrease the temperature?
- Set the temperature to that of a light bulb (around 3000 K). Based on this information, do lightbulbs seem efficient? Why do light bulbs get hot?
- Imagine that you see 2 hot, glowing objects--one is glowing orange and the other is glowing blue. Which one is hotter?
