PHY392S - Physics of Climate Lecture 3, Page 3 Wien’s Displacement Law The hotter the object, the shorter the λ of its maximum intensity (e.g., element on a stove). Wien’s Displacement Law can be used to determine the T of a blackbody from the position of the maximum monochromatic radiance. From Michael D. King, MOPITT
