**A couple Blackbody Problems???**

I'm a little confused about these two problems involving blackbodies, hopefully someone could give me a bit of insight. Thanks in advance.

1. For a blackbody we there is a frequency peak and a wavelennght peak. Lets call em v and w respectively. Now consider the derivations of the maximums dependant on temperature to prove v*w not equal to the speed of light.

Im not sure what to do here. No were in my text do they talk about the derivations for the maximums. So Im not really sure in what direction to head.

next question.

2. The peak value Mw(max) at the wavelength w(max) in the distribution of blackbody radiation increases with T (temperature). Show Mw(max) depends on T as:

Mw(max)=CT^p

where C is some constant and power p

so we have to find the constant and the power.
