Students Manual  This innovative experiment gives you an introduction of blackbody radiation and Planck's radiation law. The experimental objective involves the determination of the numerical value of Planck's constant using incandescent light bulb as a source of blackbody. Students will also practice error propagation and learn how to measure important parameters using weighted fit of a straight line.
