### What if I want to know more?

Is there a place for me to get a simplified, yet detailed explanation of this concept?

I am assuming you are referring to the topic of black body radiation as the post is categorized under that. Check out section 1B.1 in the textbook for a good explanation of this concept!

Black body radiation refers to the idea that if heated to various high temperatures, a black body (which cannot be seen) can emit different or multiple wavelengths of light. In this way, it connects more to the wave theory or wave property of electromagnetic radiation rather than the particle property.
