Chem with Cunno - Equilibrium (Temperature 2)

The planetary equilibrium temperature is a theoretical temperature that a planet would be at when considered simply as if it were a black body being heated only by its parent star. In this model, the presence or absence of an atmosphere is not considered, and one treats the theoretical black body temperature as if it came from an idealized surface of the planet.
