  • P1 1.1/1.2
    • What is Infrared Radiation
      • Energy transfer by electromagnetic waves
    • Name the electromagnetic spectrum
      • INFRARED RADIATION
      • MICROWAVES
      • VISIBLE LIGHT
      • ULTRA VIOLET
      • X- RAYS
      • GAMMA RAYS
    • What is the greenhouse effect?
      • The earths atmosphere acts like a greenhouse made of glass
        • Short wavelengths of infrared radiation from the sun, can be passed through the glass to warm up the objects inside of the greenhouse
        • Infrared Radiation from these objects are trapped inside the glass because the objects emit infrared radiation of longer wavelengths that cannot pass through the glass
