Change of Variables
Hello, I would greatly appreciate any help with the following problem. I am trying to perform a change of variable in a function/definition so that I can integrate it. In particular, I want to take Planck's Radiation Law: planck=2*Pi*c^2*h/lambda^5*(E^(h*c/(lambda*k*T))-1)^(-1) and substitute x=h*c/(lambda*k*T) and integrate wrt lambda from 0 to infinity. I tried using replace, but that does not seem to try to manipulate the function in terms of x, but simply seek out the replacement, and if it exists, perform it. An even simpler example is the following: test=v/c Replace[test^2,v/c -> beta] does not yield beta^2, but rather v^2/c^2. Again, any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
