Blackbody Radiation Spectrum Model 

written by Fu-Kwun Hwang
edited by Loo Kang Wee and Wolfgang Christian

With this simulation you can investigate how the spectrum of a black body (like the sun) depends upon temperature and wavelength. A slider control let you smoothly vary the temperature and observe the results.

The Blackbody Radiation Spectrum was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double click the ejs_ntnu_BlackbodyRadiationSpectrum.jar file to run the program if Java is installed.
