Does the color of material have any effect of the absorption of light energy?
yes it does if the material is dark it will be warm if it is
light it will be colder Yes, darker colors generally absorb AND
RADIATE more heat from radiated. Meaning that if there is plenty of
radiated heat available for example from the sun, dark clors will
absorb more. If it's dark and cold out and the surface is hot, a
dark surface will also RADIATE more heat than a lighter colored
surface. It's called "black-body radiaton."
