During the past few years several methods have been proposed for determining from experimental measurements the constants of Planck's equation for the distribution of energy in the spectrum of a uniformly heated enclosure or black body. The equation is E = /b c/ /sub 1/ lambda /sup 5/(/b e/(/sup c/sub 2// lambda thetas /)1)/sup 1/, where E is a measure of the energy, lambda the wavelength, thetas the absolute temperature, /b c/ /sub 1/ a constant depending on the units in which E is measured and giving the scale of ordinates, and /b c/ /sub 2/ a constant which affects the shape of the curve and is sometimes called the "constant of spectral rad
