Shutterstock Some days it can feel like you have to choose between your body or your hair: You can go for a run but sabotage the awesome blowout you just got or skip the gym to avoid a potentially bad hair day but miss out on all the muscle-toning, calorie-burning, health-boosting benefits of a workout. While this choice affects every woman, African-American women in particular may forgo their spin class for fear of ruining an expensive straightening treatment or time-consuming style, a recent study found.
The spectrum is peaked at a characteristic frequency that shifts to higher frequencies with increasing temperature, and at room temperature most of the emission is in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
With rising temperature, the glow becomes visible even when there is some background surrounding light: The Sun, with an effective temperature of approximately K,  is an approximate black body with an emission spectrum peaked in the central, yellow-green part of the visible spectrumbut with significant power in the ultraviolet as well.
Black-body radiation provides insight into the thermodynamic equilibrium state of cavity radiation.
If each Fourier mode of the equilibrium radiation in an otherwise empty cavity with perfectly reflective walls is considered as a degree of freedom capable of exchanging energy, then, according to the equipartition theorem of classical physics, there would be an equal amount of energy in each mode.
Since there are an infinite number of modes this implies infinite heat capacity infinite energy at any non-zero temperatureas well as an unphysical spectrum of emitted radiation that grows without bound with increasing frequency, a problem known as the ultraviolet catastrophe.
Instead, in quantum theory the occupation numbers of the modes are quantized, cutting off the spectrum at high frequency in agreement with experimental observation and resolving the catastrophe.
The study of the laws of black bodies and the failure of classical physics to describe them helped establish the foundations of quantum mechanics.

All normal baryonic matter emits electromagnetic radiation when it has a temperature above absolute zero. It is a spontaneous process of radiative distribution of entropy. Conversely all normal matter absorbs electromagnetic radiation to some degree. An object that absorbs all radiation falling on it, at all wavelengthsis called a black body.
When a black body is at a uniform temperature, its emission has a characteristic frequency distribution that depends on the temperature. Its emission is called black-body radiation.
The concept of the black body is an idealization, as perfect black bodies do not exist in nature. Experimentally, black-body radiation may be established best as the ultimately stable steady state equilibrium radiation in a cavity in a rigid body, at a uniform temperature, that is entirely opaque and is only partly reflective.
In addition, a black body is a diffuse emitter its emission is independent of direction. Consequently, black-body radiation may be viewed as the radiation from a black body at thermal equilibrium. Black-body radiation becomes a visible glow of light if the temperature of the object is high enough.
No matter how the oven is constructed, or of what material, as long as it is built so that almost all light entering is absorbed by its walls, it will contain a good approximation to black-body radiation.
The spectrum, and therefore color, of the light that comes out will be a function of the cavity temperature alone. A graph of the amount of energy inside the oven per unit volume and per unit frequency interval plotted versus frequency, is called the black-body curve.
Different curves are obtained by varying the temperature. The principle of detailed balance says that in thermodynamic equilibrium every elementary process works equally in its forward and backward sense. The causal effect of thermodynamic absorption on thermodynamic spontaneous emission is not direct, but is only indirect as it affects the internal state of the body.
This means that at thermodynamic equilibrium the amount of every wavelength in every direction of thermal radiation emitted by a body at temperature T, black or not, is equal to the corresponding amount that the body absorbs because it is surrounded by light at temperature T. This means that the black-body curve is the amount of light energy emitted by a black body, which justifies the name.
In the laboratory, black-body radiation is approximated by the radiation from a small hole in a large cavity, a hohlraumin an entirely opaque body that is only partly reflective, that is maintained at a constant temperature. This technique leads to the alternative term cavity radiation. Any light entering the hole would have to reflect off the walls of the cavity multiple times before it escaped, in which process it is nearly certain to be absorbed.
Absorption occurs regardless of the wavelength of the radiation entering as long as it is small compared to the hole. Calculating the black-body curve was a major challenge in theoretical physics during the late nineteenth century.
Planck had to assume that the energy of the oscillators in the cavity was quantized, i.In the short stories of “Why Looks Are the Last Bastion of Discrimination” and “The “Black Table” Is Still There” there are many differences from both stories.
Black-body radiation is the thermal electromagnetic radiation within or surrounding a body in thermodynamic equilibrium with its environment, or emitted by a black body (an opaque and non-reflective body).
It has a specific spectrum and intensity that depends only on the body's temperature, which is assumed for the sake of calculations and.
