The radiation of an isothermal sphere with consideration of scattering

  • Yu. A. Popov


We have solved the problem of the radiation from an isothermal sphere with a spherical scattering indicatrix. We demonstrate that the emissivity of the sphere and of the plane layer, with consideration of scattering, can be approximately presented by a single function of the product resulting from the multiplication of the attenuation factor by the geometric characteristic of the radiating volume.
