A white light is made up of all visible (and invisible) wavelengths all mixed together. So an object that appears white, is reflecting all of the incident wavelengths and absorbing nothing (or very little). A black object, on the other hand is absorbing all of the incident wavelengths (along with all of their energies) which causes it to heat up. That is why snow does not melt in cold weather even when the sun is falling directly on it. All of the incident light energy is reflected away and none (or very little) is absorbed.
It will absorb heat in the order of the photo attached, for reasons I explained.
If I understand what your asking, do you mean why does black get hotter then other colors? Because when light bounces off a color, like red, some of the light is absorbed, part, the red part is reflected making it red. Black has no color and absorbs all of the light making it warmer. If I remember science class right.
Please do us all a favor, both of you: Stay in School, and pay attention in science class...this "answer" is so wrong I have NO idea where to begin, considering that this was taught when I was in middle school....
...and, if you aren't in middle school, you're NOT old enough to be on my site.
lol, you learned in Honors that it's the sun's job to light up the whole world so it goes after black? Like, to light it up also? Scientifically, I'm astounded.
well how old do you have to be? and i do pay attention in my classes, im in honor society so that pretty much explains it.
bc the suns job is to light up the whole world so it goes after the dark spots like black....
what can i say i had a horrible science teacher!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this makes more sense than ray rays answer ty :)
it doesn't attract the heat, it retains it.
I'm with Jeremy on this. /face palm
haha good :)
