Question

# The intensity of radiation emitted by the sun has its maximum value at a wavelength of $$510$$ nm and that emitted by the North star has the maximum value at $$350$$ nm. If these stars behave like black bodies, then the ratio of the surface temperatures of the sun and the north star is:

A
1.46
B
0.69
C
1.21
D
0.83

Solution

## The correct option is B 0.69Using Wien,s displacement law, $$\lambda_m T=$$ constant, we get here$$\dfrac{T_S}{T_N}=\dfrac{\lambda_m(N)}{\lambda_m(S)}=\dfrac{350}{510}=0.69$$Physics
