4 Module –1 Modern physics and quantum mechanics Introduction: The revolution of physics starts from the 20th century. Max Planck explained the black body radiation in the year of 1900, according to him every body can absorb in quanta of energy E = hν Where h is the planks constant (6.624 X 10-34 J/Hz) and ν is the frequency Black body radiation spectrum:  The term black body was introduced by Gustav Kirchhoff in the year of 1860.  A perfect black body is one which absorbs the radiation of all wavelengths incident on it.  The nature of the black body radiation depends on temperature.  Wien studied that, when a perfect black body is heated to higher and higher temperature, it emits radiation of all possible wavelength, this radiation is called black body radiation.  Since the true black body doesn’t exist, in the year of 1895 two physicists Lummer and Wien designed a special type of black body, by heating it they measured the intensity of radiation corresponding to different wavelength. The result they have shown in a graph as follows.. From the graph, 1. For different temperature, there are different curves. The spectral distribution of energy in the radiation depends only on the temperature of the black body. 2. The higher the temperature, the greater the amount of total radiation energy emitted and also energy emitted at individual wavelength. 3. The higher the temperature, the lower the wavelength at which maximum emission occurs. Engineering Physics Manju V V, Asst.Prof, Dept of Physics, VVCE, Mysuru
