  1. Sep 22, 2008 #1
    is a turbine an example of convention? (because it is a fluid or gas)
    are vents an example of radiation?
    are heavy drapes an example of conduction?
    are window tints an example of radiation? because it is a reflector of heat
    are white tiles and paint an example of radiation?

    Please don't start another thread to clarify your question, do it in the original thread.

    I am afraid it is still not possible to answer you question. White tiles are not an example of radiation. Visible light or X-rays can be examples of radiation. Presence of white tiles can influence the way wall absorbs radiation.
