Term of the week:

Radiation

heat transfer from a hotter surface to a cooler surface strictly by electromagnetic waves (the substances are not in direct contact). Radiant heat often plays a significant role in spreading an existing fire, but does not often start the fire. Common radiant heat sources include fireplaces, space heaters, and stoves and cooktops.
