Unformatted text preview: e is the emissivity of the material ( 0 ≤ e ≤ 1 ) and 4 2 8 10 672 . 5 − − − × = K Wm . Absorption: Here electromagnetic radiation is absorbed by a surface and the absorptivity, a , of a material is the ratio of the thermal energy absorbed by the surface to the total thermal energy incident upon it . One can prove (using thermodynamic arguments) that a e = . The emissivity of a material is equal to its absorptivity (also verified experimentally).
