How do you pronounce Wien's displacement law? I have a presentation Thursday on black body radiation and I don't remember how to pronounce it... is it Ween or Wine? I don't want to make a fool of myself :smile:

Don't worry, you're not the only one who has struggled with this question! The correct pronunciation of Wien's displacement law is "vee-ens," with the emphasis on the first syllable. So it's definitely not "Ween" or "Wine." I'm sure your presentation will go great, and now you can confidently pronounce Wien's displacement law. Good luck!
