## molecular noise and blackbody radiation

### Planck's radiation law

2 Planck's radiation law a mathematical relationship formulated in 1900 by German physicist Max Planck to explain the spectral-energy distribution of radiation emitted by a blackbody (a hypothetical body that completely absorbs all radiant energy falling upon it reaches some equilibrium temperature and then reemits that energy as quickly as it absorbs it)

2013-4-22Plank thus suppressed high frequency radiation in the calculation and brought it into agreement with experiment Note that Plank's Black Body formula is the same in the limit that but goes to zero at large while the Rayleigh formula goes to infinity It is interesting to note that classical EM waves would suck all the thermal energy out of

### Black body

2020-8-13A black body or blackbody is an idealized physical body that absorbs all incident electromagnetic radiation regardless of frequency or angle of incidence The name black body is given because it absorbs radiation in all frequencies not because it only absorbs: a black body can emit black-body radiation On the contrary a white body is one with a rough surface that reflects all incident
