The mystery of blackbody radiation triggered the birth of modern physics in , when Planck in an “act of despair” invented the idea of a smallest quantum of. Blackbody radiation was a puzzle for several years. This article explains how this puzzle was solved and so that new laws of physics were. Black Body Radiation. Michael Fowler, University of Virginia, 9/7/ Query 8: Do not all fix'd Bodies, when heated beyond a certain degree, emit Light and shine.

2.1: Black-Body Radiation

The second one describes the inability of electromagnetic theory to adequately predict the characteristics of thermal radiation. In essence, the first argument went like this. Light is a wave. Waves require a medium. The medium for light was called the luminiferous ether.


It must be extremely rigid since light travels so quickly and extremely tenuous since we can't detect its drag. Rigid and tenuous are adjectives that are incompatible strong yet soft. Nineteenth Century physics cannot handle this, therefore Nineteenth Century physics is in trouble.

The ray of sunshine that dispersed this dark cloud was the theory of relativity devised by Albert Einstein.

The major revelations of this theory were that there is no ether, there is no absolute space, there is no absolute time, mass is not conserved, energy is not conserved, and nothing travels faster than light. For a while, this was the most revolutionary theory in all of physics. The second dark cloud identified by Kelvin is the subject of the rest of this section and essentially most of the rest of this book.

I won't breeze through it like I did with the first dark cloud, but I will tell you this, the solution to the problem Kelvin called "the Maxwell-Boltzmann doctrine" lead to the most revolutionary theory in all of physics — quantum mechanics.

The major revelations of this theory are that all things are both particles and waves at the same time and that nothing can be predicted or known with absolute certainty. The arrival of these two revolutionary theories divided physics up into two domains.

All theories developed before the arrival of relativity and quantum mechanics and any work derived from them are called classical physics.

All theories derived from the basic principles of relativity and quantum mechanics are called modern physics. The word modern was chosen since the foundations of these theories were laid in the first three decades of the Twentieth Century.

Blackbody Radiation

This the era of modern architecture, modern dance, modern jazz, and modern literature. Modern technologies were starting to appear like electric lights, toasters, refrigerators, sewing machines, radios, telephones, movies, phonograph records, airplanes, automobiles, subways, elevators, skyscrapers, synthetic dyes, nylon, celluloid, machine guns, dynamite, aspirin, and psychology. The early Twentieth Century was filled with revolutionary ideas and inventions.

Life now seems unimaginable without them. Modern physics was just one aspect of the modern era. Classical physics can be used to derive an equation which describes the intensity of blackbody radiation as a function of frequency for a fixed temperature — the result is known as the Rayleigh-Jeans law.

Although the Rayleigh-Jeans law works for low frequencies, it diverges as f2; this divergence for high frequencies is called the ultraviolet catastrophe.

Part I discusses and the Bohr model in order to motivate the necessity results from early interviews with sophomore modern for quantization.

Some previous research has been physics students. Part II reports on findings from conducted on student understanding of these topics, but questions administered online to juniors and seniors. These other Part III describes how the research has guided the experiments draw on ideas that are familiar to students development and assessment of an online instructional from introductory courses electric circuits, momentum homework for students in a sophomore modern physics conservation, and atomic structure , while blackbody course.

All data is from students enrolled in courses radiation is arguably more abstract. Homework and exam questions are often highly quantitative, requiring Early in this research we conducted interviews with the use of formulae that may not be well-motivated to four students in their second year of instruction in students, such as the Stephan-Boltzmann Law and physics.

The light emitted by stars introductory physics, which included some basic is the most commonly presented context, despite the quantum mechanics. They had also completed a one- existence of numerous everyday objects that may be quarter traditional non-interactive course on modern approximated as blackbodies, such as light bulbs [5]. The one-hour interviews were conducted perhaps not surprising that students struggle to connect during the quarter immediately following the modern blackbody radiation to everyday real-world objects.

Our current research is intended to identify the specific ideas with which students have difficulty. The students were asked to describe what this detector would measure from various objects, such as colorful books and people.

They were also asked whether their answers would change if the lights in the room were turned off. Answer choices for the questions administered The second half of the interview focused on having to upper-division students. Choices A-C were based on students predict the graph of intensity versus frequency incorrect sketches made by students in interviews.

If the students did not bring up the term Choices A-C in Fig. They represent the question about how it related to the interview context. Choice D is a blackbody Results curve with its peak in the visible spectrum, which would only be accurate for an object with a Despite the fact that blackbody radiation had been temperature similar to that of the sun.

The correct covered in class and on exams, students failed to answer E is a blackbody curve with a lower recognize its relevance to the interview context.

We included choice D to radiation which depends on their temperature; for make it more difficult to select the correct answer with example, they described objects at room temperature as incomplete reasoning. Choice F is from an object with not emitting any radiation other than reflected light and a discrete spectrum. Question 2: The current through the light bulb is Students also failed to use correct and consistent labels reduced to half its original value.

Describe how the for the axes on their graphs. Additional common difficulties included a tendency to confuse frequency and wavelength and an inability Results to locate different parts of the spectrum on their graphs e. However, fewer than the graph. Only one student connected blackbody half of the students explained their answer using the radiation to this topic, even after the term was brought term blackbody radiation.

The others identified no change, or did Based on the results of the interviews, we designed not reference intensity in their answers. Even for the a sequence of questions on blackbody radiation to correct answers, most explanations did not use assess the prevalence and persistence of the difficulties scientific terms, including those associated with we had identified.

These questions were administered blackbody radiation, such as the quantitative laws online to two different populations: 25 students at the discussed in the introduction.

All of these students had previously completed the modern physics course described above. To try to help students relate blackbody radiation to Question 1: An incandescent light bulb is turned real-world phenomena, we designed a one-hour online on in a darkened room with no other sources of light. In this homework, students considered blackbody radiation phenomenologically.

A total of 95 students temperatures. Then students were energy emitted by a light bulb is in the form of visible directed to an online PhET simulation on blackbody light. Students were shown a graph consistent with radiation [7,8].

The simulation displays a graph of the the temperature of a light bulb. We then asked students several more the light bulb was an inefficient source of visible light, questions including questions 2 and 3 given below. In by estimating what fraction of the area under the curve the last part of the homework, students viewed a video fell within the visible spectrum.

We also asked guiding questions about the non-visible rather than infrared.

The instructor told the students to read about this topic in the book, but did not lecture on it in class. We also studied the responses students gave infrared light.

These Question 3: Some night-vision goggles can be used interviews were performed the quarter immediately to distinguish objects in complete darkness with no following instruction. Using what you have learned, identify the conditions under which night- Pretest vision goggles can be used to distinguish between two different objects.

These results were similar in their reasoning. These incomplete responses, such to those from the interviews.Help Center Find new research papers in: Annalen der Physik,33, — The one-hour interviews were conducted perhaps not surprising that students struggle to connect during the quarter immediately following the modern blackbody radiation to everyday real-world objects.

A Mathcad file link is provided as a head start for this exercise. A full quarter after J.

Moreover, the properties of CMB photons such as polarizations may also supply evidence for gravitational waves.
