At the surface of a distant star, the temperature is approximately 6500 K.
a) How much energy is contained in the electromagnetic radiation filling a cubic meter of space at the star's surface?
b) Sketch the spectrum of this radiation as a function of photon energy. Mark the region of the spectrum that corresponds to visible wavelengths, between 400 nm and 700 nm.
