In order to properly fit the microwave background with Planck's equation and a real temperature at ~300 K, then Boltzman's constant must change.
Boltzman's constant, therefore, remains valid only for graphite, soot, or carbon black, and those materials approaching their performance at a given frequency.
where K is Boltzman's constant, h is Planck's constant, R is the molar gas constant, T is the absolute temperature, [Delta][G.
