To measure temperatures, physicists often use the variation of intensity of EM radiation emitted by an object. The wavelength at which the intensity is greatest is given by the equation:                                           λmaxT = 0.2898 cm.K where λmax is the wavelength of greatest intensity and T is the temperature of the object in kelvins. In 1965, microwave radiation peaking at λmax = 0.107 cm was discovered coming in all directions from space. To what temperature, in a) K    b) °C   c) °F, does this wavelength correspond?
(a) How many minutes does it take a photon to travel from the Sun to the Earth? min (b) What is the energy in ev of a photon with a wavelength of 478 nm? ev (c) What is the wavelength (in m) of a photon with an energy of 1.03 eV?
Consider the electromagnetic radiation inside a kiln, with a volume of 1 m3 and a temperature of 1500 K. What fraction of all the energy is in the visible portion of the spectrum, with wavelengths between 400 nm and 700 nm?
