**Blackbody radiation problem!**

## Homework Statement

The average person has 1.4 m^2 of skin at a skin temperature of roughly 306 K. Consider the average person to be an ideal radiator standing in a room at a temperature of 293 K.

a.) Calculate the energy per second radiated by the average person in the form of blackbody radiation. Express you answer in watts.

**(How do I treat the temperature?)**

## Homework Equations

L=AσT^4

Where A = area; σ = Stefan-Boltzmann constant; T = temperature (in Kelvins).

## The Attempt at a Solution

L=(1.4)*(5.670400*10^-8)*(?)^4
