What can be said about the relative temperatures of whitish-yellow, reddish, and bluish stars? Explain.
Solution 1Q: We have to predict the relative temperature of three stars from the different colour light emitted by them. Step 1 of 2 Concept: Wien's Displacement Law: The absolute temperature (T) of a body is inversely proportional to the wavelength() of the light radiated by it. Mathematically, pT = constant …(1) Thus, the shorter the wavelength of light radiated by an object, the higher is temperature.
