hey how come the IR heat up materials more than UV ?
and why people say IR go longer distances
the way i see it :
UV have faster frequencies, they should have more energy
while IR have slower frequencies, should have less energy
or is it that when hitting a electron , photons that vibrate faster transfer less energy to the electron ?
and as for the distance , i thought photons would carry on forever
so is it that high frenquence photons loose their energy faster ?
and do photons see their frequencies slower as they get in contact with matter ?
