The image above represents net heat flux for radiation.

To compute for net heat flux for radiation, four essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Emissivity (ε), Area (A), Emitting Power of Black Body (e _{b})** and

**Radiosity (J).**

The formula for calculating net heat flux for radiation:

q_{net} = ^{εAeb} / _{1 – ε} – J

Where:

q_{net} = Net Heat Flux for Radiation

ε = Emissivity

A = Area

e_{b} = Emitting Power of Black Body

J = Radiosity

Let’s solve an example;

Find the net heat flux for radiation when the emissivity is 22, the area is 2, the emitting power of black body is 10 and the radiosity is 14.

This implies that;

ε = Emissivity = 22

A = Area = 2

e_{b} = Emitting Power of Black Body = 10

J = Radiosity = 14

q_{net} = ^{εAeb} / _{1 – ε} – J

q_{net} = ^{(22)(2)(10)} / _{1 – 22} – 14

q_{net} = ^{440} / _{-21} – 14

q_{net} = -20.9523 – 14

q_{net} = -34.95

Therefore, the **net heat flux for radiation **is **-34.95 W.**
