An object radiating energy at night is in contact with the relatively warm Earth. How does its conductivity affect whether or not it becomes appreciably colder than the air?
Step 1 of 3
if the object has poor conductor, heat is conducted to it from the ground and it becomes colder but suppose if the object has good conductor than heat conducts to the ground and stabilizes its temperature Conductivity is affected by temperature.the warmer the object , the higher the conductivity.
