Q3. A wood burning stove is used to heat a room

The fire in the stove uses wood as a fuel. The fire heats the matt black metal case of the
stove.
(a) The air next to the stove is warmed by infrared radiation.
How does the design of the stove help to improve the rate of energy transfer by
infrared radiation?

Cold matt black surfaces absorb radiation best,
hot matt black surfaces emit radiation best.

The black colour is the best absorber of infared radiation, but it is also the best emitter of infared radiation. Therefore, the black colour of the stove helps to absorb the infared radiation from the fire and transfer it to the surroundings more quickly than any other colour would.
