Wien Distribution Law
</dt>
A relation, derived on purely thermodynamic
reasoning by Wien, between the monochromatic emittance of
an ideal black body
and that body's temperature, J_{λ}/T^{5} = f(λ, T) where
J_{λ} is the monochromatic emittance
(emissive power) of a black body at wavelength λ and absolute
temperature T, and f(λ, T) is a function which cannot be determined
purely on classical thermodynamic grounds. Compare Wien law. [[/a>|/a>
