Suppose a star with radius 8.50 × 108 m has a peak
wavelength of 685 nm in the spectrum of its emitted radiation.
Assume the star is a perfect blackbody. (A) What is the energy of a
photon with this wavelength? (B) What is the surface temperature of
the star? (C) At what rate is energy emitted from the star in the
form of radiation?

A particular star has a radius of 8.58 ✕ 108 m. The
peak intensity of the radiation it emits is at a wavelength of 682
nm.
(a)
What is the energy (in J) of a photon with this wavelength?
J
(b)
What is the star's surface temperature (in K)? (Round your
answer to at least the nearest integer.)
K
(c)
At what rate (in W) is energy emitted from the star in the form
of radiation? Assume the star is...

1. What is the peak wavelength emitted by a star with a surface
temperature of 7070 K? Give your answer in nm (1 nm =
10-9 m), but enter only the numerical part in the
box.
2. By how much would a star's temperature need to increase in
order for its peak wavelength to decrease from 460 to 360 nm? Your
answer will be the change in temperature. Give your answer in K,
but enter only the numerical part in...

Assuming the Sun radiates as a blackbody at a temperature of
5800 K, calculate the expected surface temperature of the Earth,
assuming that the Earth also acts as a perfect blackbody. Assume
the Earth absorbs an amount of energy proportional to its
cross-sectional area, but radiates as a spherical blackbody. If the
Earth is in thermal equilibrium with outer space, then the energy
received (mostly at visible wavelengths) must equal the amount of
energy re- radiated (mostly) in the infrared....

A lot of blackbody irradiation emanates from the surface of the
earth. Recall that light energy (and energy from any region of the
electromagnetic spectrum) is quantized. The energy of a photon can
be calculated as follows:
E = hν =
hcλ
where h is the Planck constant (6.626×10−34 J⋅s), and
c represents the speed of light (2.998×108 m/s).
Calculate the energy (in joules) of each photon that is emitted
from a patch of ground that is at 32 ∘C....

The star Rigel in the constellation Orion (the Hunter) emits its
greatest intensity of radiation at a wavelength of 239 nm.
a) Calculate the surface temperature of the star.
b) What colour is the star? Explain your answer.

Assuming that your surface temperature is 97.7 F and that you
are an ideal blackbody radiator (you are close), find
(a) the wavelength at which your spectral radiancy
is maximum, (b) the power at which you emit
thermal radiation in a wavelength range of 1.00 nm at that
wavelength, from a surface area of 4.10 cm2, and
(c) the corresponding rate at which you emit
photons from that area. Using a wavelength of 500 nm (in the
visible range), (d)...

Assume that the Sun approximates a blackbody. If the peak
emission wavelength of the Sun is 512 nm, determine: (a) the
surface temperature of the Sun, (b) the total power radiated by the
Sun, and (c) the intensity of sunlight at the edge of the
atmosphere of the Earth?

A star has a surface temperature of 4500 K.
a. Calculate the peak wavelength of its brightness vs. wavelength
curve. [1.5 points]
b. What color does this wavelength correspond to? (Note: See p.
5-7 of the textbook for a list of colors corresponding to different
wavelength ranges. If the wavelength is in the infrared or
ultraviolet range, state “IR” or “UV” as the color.) [0.5
points]
c. Now imagine that the star is moving away from us at
0.15c, where...

The sun is a main sequence G5 type star with a surface
temperature TMS = 5800 K. When the sun exhausts its Hydrogen supply
it will evolve into a red giant with a surface temperature TRG =
3000 K and a radius of 100 times its present value. What is the
peak wavelength of the sun in its main sequence and red giant
phases? How many times larger will the sun’s radiative power be in
the red giant phase? Assume...
