Intensity of Radiation

The intensity of radiation is defined as the rate of emitted energy from unit surface area through unit solid angle. The radiation from a surface has different intensities in different directions. The intensity of radiation along a normal to the surface is known as intensity of normal radiation, In. By using Lambert's cosine law and Stefan-Boltzmann law for a surface at absolute temperature, T and emissivity, , we obtain:
