Variables Used
Thermal Resistance - (Measured in Kelvin per Watt) - Thermal resistance is a heat property and a measurement of a temperature difference by which an object or material resists a heat flow.
Emissivity - Emissivity is the ability of an object to emit infrared energy. Emissivity can have a value from 0 (shiny mirror) to 1.0 (blackbody). Most organic or oxidized surfaces have emissivity close to 0.95.
Base Area - (Measured in Square Meter) - The Base Area refers to the area of one of the bases of a solid figure.
Temperature of Surface 1 - (Measured in Kelvin) - Temperature of Surface 1 is the temperature of the 1st surface.
Temperature of Surface 2 - (Measured in Kelvin) - Temperature of Surface 2 is the temperature of the 2nd surface.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Emissivity: 0.95 --> No Conversion Required
Base Area: 10 Square Meter --> 10 Square Meter No Conversion Required
Temperature of Surface 1: 100 Kelvin --> 100 Kelvin No Conversion Required
Temperature of Surface 2: 150 Kelvin --> 150 Kelvin No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Rth = 1/(ε*[Stefan-BoltZ]*A*(T1+T2)*(((T1)^2)*((T2)^2))) --> 1/(0.95*[Stefan-BoltZ]*10*(100+150)*(((100)^2)*((150)^2)))
Evaluating ... ...
Rth = 3.30021853830584E-05
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit

## What is Thermal resistance for heat radiation?

The heat radiation occurs by a different mechanism from the
thermal conduction or convection (heat transmission) where
heat is transferred via molecules. Through the heat radiation,
heat can be transferred in a vacuum where no object or fluid
exists.

## How to Calculate Radiation Thermal Resistance?

Radiation Thermal Resistance calculator uses Thermal Resistance = 1/(Emissivity*[Stefan-BoltZ]*Base Area*(Temperature of Surface 1+Temperature of Surface 2)*(((Temperature of Surface 1)^2)*((Temperature of Surface 2)^2))) to calculate the Thermal Resistance, Radiation Thermal Resistance is represented as the reciprocal of the product of the radiative heat transfer coefficient and the surface area of the object that generates heat. Thermal Resistance is denoted by Rth symbol.
