Stellar Blackbody Radiation Curves model simulates the blackbody radiation curve of stars and how this leads to the observed color and luminosity of the star. If a star can be treated as a blackbody, the blackbody radiation curve of the star, the power density per area (or intensity) per wavelength (energy/time/volume) vs wavelength, is dependent on the star's temperature (spectral class).
In the simulation, the star is shown along with its luminosity and spectral class. In separate graph, the blackbody radiation curve, the visible part of the spectrum, and the integrated stellar surface intensity (integrating the blackbody curve over all wavelengths) are shown. In another window the HR diagram can be shown indicating the current star's parameters. The radius of the star (in Rsun) and the temperature of the star in Kelvin (5780 K is Tsun) can be changed.
