Heat or Absorbed Energy and EM Radiation / Conductivity

    I would like to know whether Kelvin or KJs matter when it comes down to a material radiating and / or conducting its heat.

    I don't know how to edit so excuse me for double posting but me and my friend figured it out now.

    Just to point out for others, Kelvin is a measure of temperature, Kilojoules is a measure of energy and work. You would need both to answer your question I think. Glad you figured it out though!
