ColourTemperature

Semantic definition

The colour temperature of any source of radiation is defined as the temperature (in Kelvin) of a black-body or Planckian radiator whose radiation has the same chromaticity as the source of radiation. Often the values are only approximate colour temperatures as the black-body radiator cannot emit radiation of every chromaticity value. The colour temperatures of the commonest artificial light sources range from less than 3000K (warm white) to 4000K (intermediate) and over 5000K (daylight).
