Calculate the wavelength of the maximum spectral radiancy and identify the region of the electromagnetic spectrum to which it belongs for each of the following:
(a) The 2.7-K cosmic background radiation, a remnant of the primordial fireball.
(b) Human body, assuming a skin temperature of [math]34^0[/math] C .
(c) A tungsten lamp filament at 1800 K.
(d) The Sun, at an assumed surface temperature of 5800 K.
(e) An exploding thermo nuclear device, at an assumed fireball temperature of [math]10^7[/math] K .
(f) The universe immediately after the Big Bang, at an assumed temperature of [math]10^38[/math] K .
We may assume cavity radiation conditions throughout.
A cavity whose walls are held at 1900 K has a small hole, 1.00 mm in diameter, drilled in its wall. Find the rate at which energy is escaping through this hole from the interior of the cavity.
We'll be uploading more content on this site soon.
