    Do you mean this? If so, I'm sure you could've found it!

    planks law

    could you declare the planks formula through [tex]\lambda[/tex] please

    thank you
    i found that but i need proof of this.

    You'll have to help me help you. Is the link I provided for you any use? If so, you (should) know a formula relating frequency and wavelength.

    There's a proof on that page!

    Note that you will probably know a lot more than me about this topic.

    planks law

    could you prove this
    [tex]\lambda_{max}[/tex]*T=constant=x
    and find x
    by planks formula?

    yes, that is Wiens displacement law.
    Just Do the "approximation" Wien "did" and find maximum. I.e remove the (-1) in the denominator in placks law.

    Wiens radiation law is for small wavelengths, and Rayleighs is for large. Planck is for all.
    Now try figure out WHY the (-1) is removed in order to get Wiens law from placks law.
