1. Calculate the intensity of the radiated energy from a body at 100ºC. Then calculate the net intensity if the surroundings are at 90ºC.

2. Two aluminum spheres are at a temperature of 100ºC in surroundings at 90ºC. The smaller has a surface area of 1 m2. The larger sphere has 8 times the mass of the smaller. What is the ratio of the initial heat loss of the larger sphere to that of the smaller?

3. Compare the spectral emittance at a wavelength of 1 micron of objects at 1000 K and 500 K.
