Radiation 5. Quantum Theory and Radiation

    • Science

Transcript: Radiation is another mode of heat transfer or way to move energy from one place to another. Every object that has a temperature emits thermal radiation. Unlike the case of convection or conduction, radiation can occur through the vacuum of space. It is the Sun’s radiation that stops the Earth from being in a deep freeze. Radiation is one of the most fundamentally important concepts in astronomy.
