  1. I would think that graph which you couldn't post would give you the wavelength. At any rate, the peak is at the lower wavelengths
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black-body_radiation

    I found this at 5000 K which is close to 4500 K. This shows 5,000 K about 500 or 600 nm so my guess is that 4500 K would be shifted to the red a little more and that makes me think in terms of "the red part of the spectrum" or " the upper end of the visible spectrum" or something to that effect.

    If you can read the wavelength from that graph, yellow is about 590 A, orange is about 650 A and red is about 700. I'll look for a chart that shows that wavelengths if you need it.
