I am trying to graphically show the radiance emissions of both the Sun and Earth. I am using NASA's radiance calculator then going to graph it on paper.
Here is what I typed in:
Low wavelength: 0.1μm
high wavelength: 100.0μm
Temp: 5778k <- for the sun's avg temp
Emissivity: 1.00 <- was unsure what this was for
Temp: 274.03 <- for the Earth's avg temp
x-axis scale: log
y-axis scale: log
As far as making a plot of the emitted energy of the Sun and the emitted energy of Earth on the same graph does this look correct? How might one annotate/label the curves to show where the peak emission occurs?
Should the x or y axis be dialed down they are between 0.1 to 100.0 and then the y-axis sale 0.01 to 10.000
I appears that the Suns peak emission is between 0.32 - 10.00microns and the Earth is 10.00microns.
