The concrete wall of a building is 0.10 m thick. The temperature inside the building is 20.0 °C, while the temperature outside is 0.0 °C. Heat is conducted through the wall. When the building is unheated, the inside temperature falls to 0.0 °C, and heat conduction ceases. However, the wall does emit radiant energy when its temperature is 0.0 °C. The radiant energy emitted per second per square meter at 0.0 °C is the same as the heat lost per second per square meter due to conduction when the temperature inside the building is 20.0 °C. What is the emissivity of the wall?
