In this equation, exponent n represents well-known heat transfer rates: the Newtonian heat transfer rate (n = 1), the radiative heat transfer rate (n = 4), and so on; [k.sub.h] is the thermal conductance at the hot side of the engine; [T.sub.H] is the temperature of the hot reservoir; and [T.sub.h] is the temperature of the working fluid at the hot side of the engine.
[2] has shown that radiative heat transfer due to clusters and the dispersed phase are the same i.e.
Radiative coupling occurs when a part of the internal circuit acts as an antenna and radiates unintentional EM waves.
The clear sky total (direct + diffuse) aerosol radiative forcing at the surface and top of the atmosphere was calculated in the shortwave (0.2-4.0 [micro]m) region using the SBDART model, developed by Ricchiazzi et al.
During the time of the medieval megadroughts, increased radiative forcing was caused by natural climate variability.
Researchers in the new study looked at data taken from previous observations of those two bodies and found that radiative forcing estimates from those data corresponded with the incomplete laboratory data of methane absorption on Earth.
To solve the radiative heat transfer equation, the optical properties of the fibers must be determined.
The cabinet also approved the organisation of the Nuclear and Radiative Control Authority, referring to the Shura Council two drafts: one on the Civil Liability System on Nuclear Harms and the other on Control System of Nuclear and Radiative Usage to study them in accordance with the regular procedures.

Recent changes to vegetation cover are causing the Earth's surface to heat up, altering the radiative and non-radiative properties of the surface of the Earth, while natural ecosystems play a crucial role in countering climate change, air pollution, and soil erosion.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report [3] indicates that the average direct radiative forcing of global BC aerosols is 0.4 W x [m.sup.-2].
Based on the above observations, the fundamental modes which are resonant can be classified into four categories internal resonant eigenmodes, external resonant natural modes, radiative resonant CMs, and nonradiative resonant CMs, and the relationships and differences among these fundamental resonant modes are analyzed in papers [27, 28, 30].
