The Blackbody Radiation: Frequency and Wavelength model simulates the blackbody radiation curves of Planck both as a function of frequency and as a function of wavelength to allow for comparison of the two functions. The Planck radiation law can be derived both as a function of frequency and as a function of wavelength. In doing so, one gets two slightly different expressions for the energy density per frequency (wavelength) as a function of frequency (wavelength.  Shown in the main window is a schematic of a blackbody cavity showing (on the right) the color of the radiation emitted. The graph plots the energy density per frequency (wavelength) as a function of frequency (wavelength and shows the visible spectrum. One can switch between the two functions by using the radio buttons provided. A slider alows the twmperature to be set or changed.

The Blackbody Radiation: Frequency and Wavelength model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_qm_blackbody_fw.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
