Unformatted text preview: The energy of a photon is given by: E = hc/ = h Where h is a physical constant called Planck's constant. Young's Double Slit Experiment (1801) n = 2 - dark n = 1 n = 0 - bright n = 1 n = 2 - dark 3. Black is essentially the absence of color Black body - all electromagnetic radiation that hits a black body is absorbed. It is an object that is a perfect radiator when hot and a perfect absorber when cool o Stars are an example of an almost perfect black body o 3 laws of blackbodies 4. Planck's Law - predicts how much electromagnetic radiation is coming out at every wavelength for a blackbody at a particular temperature....
