Radiative heat transfer in an isotropically scattering and nongray absorbing planar medium is investigated. General wide-band absorption quantities, including the effects of gray absorption and scattering by the scattering components and nongray absorption by the gaseous components, are considered. Analysis for the reflection, transmission, and emission from isothermal layers is presented. Numerical calculations are presented for the wide-band absorption quantities in the high-pressure limit. The effects of the scattering and absorption properties on the wide band absorption quantities are discussed.
