Heat Absorption and Colors
Heat Absorption: Heat absorption is a process by which an object takes in energy from its surroundings. Colors: Colors are light waves that are reflected off of an object. Colors and Heat Absorption: Different colors absorb different amounts of heat energy. Darker colors absorb more energy than lighter colors.
Different colors absorb different amounts of heat - dark colors like black absorb more heat than lighter colors like white. The colors of an object are determined by the amount of heat it absorbs, and not the amount of light it reflects. The color of an object can change when it absorbs enough heat - for example, a metal object can turn from silver to yellow when heated.
