I'm learning about the three types of heat transfer conduction, convection, and radiation.
An example the teacher gives us is a campfire which involves all three. Now I know that the hot air rising is convection and I also know that the fire gives off electromagnetic waves in the form of visible light and infrared.
My question is where the majority of the heat is coming from if it let's say heats an object overhead the fire? Since the radiant waves are directed everywhere(including upwards) and the hot air also goes up, is there a way of determining which is more dominant?
You could say the fire emits thermal radiation without needing a medium but in this case, it's not in a vacuum and it could also be convective heating since there is a fluid. I hope my explanation of my question wasn't too convoluted, thanks!
