Approximate emissivity calculations for CO2 have been carried out, as a function of optical density, at 300 and at 600°K. The calculations involve the assumption that the rotational lines overlap extensively. This condition appears to be satisfied at total pressures above about 1 atmos. Comparison of the values calculated from spectroscopic data with the emissivities tabulated by Hottel and his collaborators shows satisfactory agreement. The analysis presented in this manuscript emphasizes the fact that it is possible to obtain reasonable estimates for the engineering emissivity without performing extensive analytical work, provided the physical principles are understood and the needed spectroscopic data are available.
