Radiation is a specific type of energy that can travel long distances and space at the same speed as light. Most of our gadgets and modern-day tech emit radiation in a form of an electromagnetic field. Not only that, but doctors can treat cancer through brachytherapy, radiation oncology, and radiation therapy. But large doses of radiation are bad for the person’s body as they can destroy and affect one’s DNA.

## How to Calculate the Rate of Heat Transfer of Radiation

Scientists have devised a formula that determines the rate of heat transfer of radiation in a given situation. The formula is Q/t=σeAT^4, where Q/t is the rate of heat transfer, σ is the Stefan-Boltzman constant (σ=5.67×10−8J/s⋅m2⋅K4), A is the area of the object, and T^4 is the absolute temperature in Kelvin (K).

### Step 1: Write Down the Formula for Radiation

Begin by writing down and understanding the formula for radiation. This will help provide a salient outline and structure that you can use as a reference for the final equation.

### Step 2: List Out the Given Numbers and Ensure Correct Measurements

You must list out the numbers given by the question so that you can easily pinpoint and substitute said numbers for the correct variables. Be sure to have the correct measurements required by the formula for radiation, if it isn’t correct you will need to convert said measurements.

### Step 3: Substitute the Formula and Answer The Equation

You must now substitute the numbers with their associated variables in the formula to create the equation. Ensure that the missing variable is on the left-hand side of the equation.

After you have solved the radiation equation, you must list out the measurement of the answer on the right-hand side of the number. If the measurement required by the question is different, convert the answer accordingly.
