RADIATION 1
Thermal radiation is the mode of heat transfer by electromagnetic (EM) waves that are in the range of
wavelengths = 0.1 to 100 , and includes ultraviolet, visible light (0.38 0.76 ), and infrared

TRANSIENT CONDUCTION
Transient conduction, or unsteady conduction, refers to the general class of conduction where the
temperature in the solid varies with time. Hence they are time-dependent proble
