Black Body

As children, we’re taught to paint cold things blue and hot things red. In science we learn that blue things are actually far hotter than red things! In this Hangout, we will learn how hot objects radiate energy as light of many colors following what is called a black body curve.

Highlighted Mission: Integral

Inquiry Activity: Compare different kinds of light sources with a spectrograph, use the Nebraska Applet Project Black Body Simulator.
