- The "glass" in glass top ranges apparently has quite low heat conductivity as areas just a short distance from the heating element don't get so hot - especially compared to a metal surface which has excellent heat conductivity.
- The glass does not get red-hot.
- Presume the glass top is essentially transparent to infrared?
- Conclusion: the dominant heat transfer mechanism is radiation.
- Is #3 above true?
- Is #4 above true?
