  • INFRARED RADIATION
    • All objects emit and absorb radiation.
    • The hotter an object is the more infrared radiation it radiates in a given time.
    • Dark, matt surfaces are good absorbers and good emitters of infrared radiation.
    • Light, shiny surfaces are poor absorbers and emitters of infrared radiation.
    • Light, shiny surfaces are good reflectors of infrared radiation.
    • Infrared radiation is a type of EM radiation, which involves waves instead of particles.
