Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was thinking about how a blackbody (and any other type of body) eventually reaches a steady-state, constant and finite temperature once the absorbed energy is equal to the emitted energy. The specific heat of a substance indicates the temperature change causes by the absorption/emission of a certain amount of energy.

That said, what would the specific heat of an ideal blackbody be?

Thanks!!
