Is radiant energy and light energy the same?
Moreover, is radiant energy and solar energy the same?
Radiant energy is the energy of electromagnetic waves. The term is most commonly used in the fields of radiometry, solar energy, heating and lighting, but is also used less frequently in other fields (such as telecommunications).
Subsequently, question is, what exactly is radiant energy? Radiant energy is the energy of electromagnetic waves. It is a form of energy that can travel through space. For example, we receive the heat from the sun, which is located very far from the earth via radiation. The energy in the electromagnetic waves is what we call radiant energy.
Moreover, what are the 7 types of radiant energy?
There are lots of types of energy: thermal, radiant, chemical, electric and nuclear. Radiant energy is energy contained in electromagnetic waves. These include visible light, infrared, radio waves, ultraviolet and microwaves.
What is the difference between sound energy and radiant energy?
Sound Energy- is produced when an object is made to vibrate. Sound energy travels out as waves in all directions. Radiant Energy - is a combination of heat and light energy. Light energy, like sound energy, travels out in all directions in waves.
