Unformatted text preview: 0.01*10 8 Hz which is in the frequency of radio waves . 3. A piece of iron is heated with a torch to a temperature of 6000 K. How much more energy does it emit as blackbody radiation at 6000K than it does at room temperature, 300 K? 7.348*10 7 J 4. What is the wavelength of the peak of the blackbody radiation curve for the human body (T=310 K)? What type of EM wave is this? 2897 μm/310 K = 9.35 μm which is infrared light . 5. What is the frequency of the EM wave emitted most strongly be a glowing element on a stove with temperature 1,800 K? (3*10 8 m/s) / (1609*10-9 m) = 1.864*10 14 Hz...
