The iron spiral-like circle blocking the fire, heats up the air, so it would be either Convection or Radiation.

Rather, this solar energy warms the Earth, and the Earth emits its own energy to space.

Why do darker colors absorb heat and lighter colors reflect it?

1 Comment

dark objects absorb all wavelengths of light and converts them into heat.

Light objects reflect all wavelengths of light so light is not converted to heat.
