This lesson covers the concept of emissivity and absorptivity of gases, and how these properties can be calculated based on information from each of the absorption bands of the gas. It further delves into how these calculations can be applied to solve real-world problems. The lesson explains how emissivity depends on the path length of the absorbing gas and the gas temperature. It also discusses how this information can be utilized in radiative heat transfer. The lesson provides an example of how to convert a problem defined in terms of absorption co-efficient to one in terms of emissivity. It also discusses the concept of 'lifted minimum', a phenomenon observed in the atmosphere, and how it can be explained using the emissivity model.
