    Energy per unit volume per unit frequency of a blackbody radiation is

    S = 2π(kT)^3/(c^2h^2) * x^3/(e^x-1), (1)

    where x = hf/(kT)

    As the energy of a photon is hf, the number of photons per unit volume per unit frequency is
    N = S/(hf) = 2π(kT)^2/(c^2h^2) * x^2/(e^x-1) (2)

    Its maximum is when dN/dx = 0. Differentiating equation (2) we obtain the condition ...
