This value was merely a rough approximation as inferred from plotting the data on a small scale and is not accurate enough for the present purpose. The revised value given in the present paper results from a more careful examination of the data, and a more precise and reliable method of reducing it.

  8. It is to be observed that while the visibility of energy enters into the formulas used, it does not enter in such a way as to affect the temperature found so long as the same values of visibility known to be approximately correct, are used in determining all values of λc considered and the spectral distribution approximates Planck’s formula. The values of visibility actually used throughout the present paper are shown by the solid curve in Fig. 8, J. Op. Soc. Am., 4, p. 471.
