Programming to find Planck distribution

  1. Sep 15, 2009 #1
    hi everyone,
    one of my hw questions asks me to write a computer program to evaluate the Planck distribution at any temperature and wavelength and add it to a routine for evaluating integrals for the energy density of the radiation between two wavelengths.
    I have never used any programming to study chemistry, can anyone show me which language should I use, and some links for the tutorials for programming applied for physical chemistry?
    any help appreciated, thank you.

    If you've never done any programming before, I don't see how you can do an assignment like this in any reasonable amount of time. Pretty much any computer language would work (for example c, c++, basic, fortran, etc.) but if you have never learned any programming then it takes quite a while to get up to speed.

    If you at least knew one programming language it would be easier to help you.
