- There are two thin spheres A and B of the same material and same thickness.They emit like black bodies.Radius of A is double that of B.A and B have same tempt. T .When A and B are kept in a room of tempt T0(less than T),the ratio of their rates of cooling (rate of fall of tempt) is
- Two bodies A and B have emissivities 0.5 and 0.8 respec .At some tempt the two bodies have emissive powers at these tempt.
