Chapter 4: Energy and Heat 02/13/2017 ▯ Radiation o All objects emit electromagnetic radiation just because they have a temperature. This is a type of energy transfer by heat. o Rate at which energy is emitted increases with temperature (hotter objects emit more radiation). o The type of radiation given off also depends on temperature.  Type depends on the frequency of the electromagnetic wave.  Hotter objects emit radiation with higher frequencies (and therefore smaller wavelengths).  Examples: visible, infrared, ultraviolet, etc. ▯ ▯ Electromagnetic Radiation o Electromagnetic radiation: energy carried as electromagnetic waves. o Waves h
