aluminum ring. Both are at 50° C. If you heat up only the ring, how hot does it need to get (°C)? (b) A typical 100 W incandescent light bulb has a tungsten ﬁlament which is at a temperature of 3000 K. Typically, of the 100 W
that goes into the bulb, 97.4 W of heat is conducted or convected away, and only 2.6 W is radiated as light (and most of that is
invisible infrared light—now you see why incandescent lights are so inefﬁcient). If you assume the emissivity of the ﬁlament to be
