    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Consider a 5.50×10 (to the 4th power) object that emits thermal radiation.

    2. Relevant equations
    How much power does it emit per square meter? W
    What is its wavelength of peak intensity? nm

    3. The attempt at a solution

    i am looking for the equations to calculate this thing:confused:

    What does this number describe about the object? I.e what are the units?

    I would guess you have been learning about the Stefan-Boltzman law and Wien's displacement law.
