In an old house, the heating system uses radiators, which are hollow metal devices through which hot water or steam circulates. In one room the radiator has a dark color (emissitivity = 0.818). It has a temperature of 64.8 oC. The new owner of the house paints the radiator a lighter color (emissitivity = 0.417). Assuming that it emits the same radiant power as it did before being painted, what is the temperature (in degrees Celsius) of the newly painted radiator?
