Question: the emissivity of galvanized steel sheet a common roofing material...

Question details

The emissivity of galvanized steel sheet, a common roofing material, is ε = 0.13 at temperatures around 300 K, while its absorptivity for solar irradiation is αS = 0.65. Would the neighborhood cat be comfortable walking on a roof constructed of the material on a day when GS = 750 W/m2, T∞ = 16°C, and h = 7 W/m2 · K? Assume the bottom surface of the steel is insulated.
