## Main Question or Discussion Point

In many textbooks Plancks law or function is also refered to as Plancks distribution.

But is it a true distribution function?

I was reading a textbook where it was describing Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution

(which is a true distribution function since its integral across the range equals 1 )

and a few pages later it was comparing it with Plancks distribution pointing out how similar they look.
