We’re being asked to determine the effect of the absorption of infrared energy on matter.
Recall that in the electromagnetic spectrum, radiation:
• On the left side: has high energy and frequency and low wavelength
• On the right side: has low energy and frequency and high wavelength
What is the effect of the absorption of infrared energy on matter?
