Question #2500
Cooling fins on motor engines are rough and painted gray or black why?
Expert's answer
Radiated heat is a direct function of surface area. Rough surfaces have more surface area for a given object size than smoothly polished surfaces. They are better passive radiators. Considering the color, we should recall& black body radiation theory. Black is the best absorber of radiation and also the best emitter.
