Does a body at 20°C radiate in a room, where the room temperature is 30°C? If yes, why does its temperature not fall further?
Yes, the body will radiate at 20°C. Every entity with a temperature greater than 0K will radiate. In this case, as the room temperature(30°C) is greater than the body temperature, the temperature of the body would not fall further. Since the surrounding is warmer, the rate of absorption of radiation of the body from the surrounding will be comparatively greater than the thermal loss of the body by its own radiation. As a result, the temperature of the body will does not further fall.

Two identical metal balls one at T1 = 300 K and the other at T2 = 600 K are kept at a distance of 1m in vacuum. Will the temperatures equalize by radiation? Will the rate of heat gained by the colder sphere be proportional to as may be expected from the Stefan’s law?HC Verma - Concepts of Physics Part 2
