stellar spectrum
characteristics of a star which is evidenced by its unique pairing of its own continuous emission spectrum with the star unique line absorption spectrum
1 of 6
black body
name given to a body which will asorb all radiation incident upon it
2 of 6
wien displacement
Wavelength of peak transmission from a black body is inversely proportional to the absolute temperature of that body
3 of 6
stefans law
total electromagnetic radiation energy emitted per u it time by a black body is directly proportional to the product of the surface area of the body .
