Black-body temperature of a closed Universe
- 23 Downloads
In a closed gravitationally-bound Universe we are subject to an inward accelerationa0. One consequence of this acceleration is that matter will radiate and create a black-body spectrum throughout the Universe. Using the valuea0=7.623×10−12 ms−2 and a radiation formula from a previously-described cosmological model (Wåhlin, 1981), we obtain a black-body temperature of 2.766 K.
