Peak wave deviation

    How far from the peak wave do objects emit electromagnetic radiation? Humans emit infrared radiation, but I read that we also emit some microwave also.

    Blackbody radiation is a continuum. You radiate over the whole spectrum, with intensity varying as a function of wavelength.
