Question and answer
Q: The peak intensity of radiation from Mars is about 14,000 nm. What is the average surface temperature of Mars rounded to the nearest whole number? 207 K 406 K 4,857 K Mars does not emit radiation.
A: use Wien's Displacement Law When the temperature of a blackbody radiator increases, the overall radiated energy increases and the peak of the radiation curve moves to shorter wavelengths. [ When the maximum is evaluated from the Planck radiation formula, the product of the peak wavelength and the temperature is found to be a constant. Calculation This relationship is called Wien's
displacement law and is useful for the determining the temperatures of hot radiant objects such as stars, and indeed for a determination of the temperature of any radiant object whose temperature is far above that of its surroundings. It should be noted that the peak of the radiation curve in the Wien relationship is the peak only because the intensity is plotted as a function of wavelength. If frequency or some other variable is used on the horizontal axis, the peak will be at a different wavelength. ]
