Homework Help: Describe the pattern of intensity vs wavelength .

  1. May 30, 2013 #1
    Describe the pattern of intensity vs wavelength observed in blackbody experiments and explain why these observations were in conflict with the predictions of classical physics.

    is this right?
    the shorter the wavelength, the greater the intensity.

    This is wht I wrote:
    Classical physics suggested that more energy would be produced at higher frequencies.

    If that's an answer to the first part of the question, no, that does not adequately describe what is observed.
    Yes, but more significantly, that this would be the case all the way, through ever higher frequencies.
