I don't think we do because we didn't go over it in lecture and it's not mentioned in the parts of the syllabus that the midterm will cover.
I don't think we need to know black body radiation for the exam because Lavelle has mentioned multiple times that we won't be going into detail about it, however, I think it would be good to have a general understand of a black body being an object that absorbs and emits all frequencies of radiation without favor. That way, if it shows up as an option in a multiple choice question you can get to the correct answer more easily.
Hello! I agree with Juliet above - it was mentioned a few times and also is included briefly in the textbook readings, so it'd be a good idea to know general information about the topic. However, I don't believe it is a required topic to know on the Outline. Good luck on the midterm!
