Radiation Activities

Radiation Activities:
Heat and light are two forms of radiation that we experience every day. Light from the sun comes in through the windows of your house and is absorbed by furniture, walls, and floors and is reradiated as heat. This can feel good in the winter but may make your house or a room too warm in the summer. Understanding radiant energy like heat and light becomes important for learning how to make your home more comfortable and also save money on heating and cooling bills.

The activities below help illustrate the concept of radiation:
