Specific Intensity, Flux, Flux Density, Radiative Transfer
Hi, I'm new to the technical aspects of astronomy and I'm having trouble quantifying what the definitions of some of these terms are. I can find equations that relate most of them, but I'm not sure how to use any of them.
The terms are specific intensity, flux, flux density, and monochromatic specific intensity. I've tried searching for websites that relate to these terms but so far I'm out of luck.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
