21. List the types of electromagnetic radiation in order of increasing wavelength. 22. For photons 1 and 2, if λ 1 2 = 5 , find the ratios ν 1 2 and E 1 /E 2 . 23. Consider an ultraviolet photon with wavelength λ UV = 300 nm and an infrared photon with wavelength λ IR = 1200 nm . Compute the ratios ν UV IR and E UV /E IR . 24. Explain how the Kelvin (absolute) temperature scale is defined. Give the temperatures for the following in the Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin scales: (a) absolute zero (b) the freezing point of water (c) the boiling point of water 25. Explain what black body radiation is. 26. Sketch approximate black body curves (spectra) for stars with temperatures of 3000 K, 6000 K, and 12,000 K. Label the axes. Indicate the wavelengths of peak emission on your figure. On which side of the peak do the curves fall faster? 27. For two stars with the following surface temperatures, calculate the ratio of wavelengths of peak emission, λ max , 1 max , 2 . T 1 = 3000 K , T 2 = 12 , 000 K 28. The wavelength of peak emission of the Sun is approximately 500 nm and the surface temperature of the sun is approximately 6000 K. Use this information to find the wavelength of peak emission for a star that has a surface temperature of 3000 K.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
