Abstract: The research work is carried out to find spectrum of wavelength of the emitted radiations from filament bulb. Both temperature and wavelength measurement are based on theoretical model. The temperature finding formula for tungsten filament is obtained by using blackbody radiation approach. The peak wavelength of the emitted radiation is obtained 1.461 μm and 1.125 μm for 6 and 500 watt bulb respectively by using Wein’s displacement law which depends upon temperature of the filament. The wavelength obtained by using Wein’s displacement law, is just an index, which helps to investigate, “how the radiation energy density is distributed” so as to give rise to an electromagnetic spectrum. The results obtained from the applied methodologies show that the accuracy of a model is quite good. Some mathematical techniques and probability theory are used to verify the work. The work is followed by both classical and quantum analysis to justify the results. Temperature only is not the key factor that deserves power of the bulb. The value of resistance plays a vital role in fixing power of the bulb. At least one factor is important in the calibration of the power of the bulb, “either temperature or surface area” of the filament.
