What happens when heat hits a solid?
The same with when a light hits a solid; the energy either gets reflected or absorbed. If light hits a dark colored solid, most of the light will be absorbed, and the black object will get warm. If light hits a light-colored solid, most of the light will be reflected, and the white object will stay cool. By the way, the same thing happens to both heat and light, because heat is a form of light; heat is also called infrared light. Further answer It does depend somewhat on what form this heat is in. If it's radiation then the answer above is fine. But if it's in the form of say, hot air, then there won't be any reflection, just conduction of the heat from the air to the solid.

How much heat does a light bulb make?

Is electricity the same as electric light?
Electricity is not the same as electric light. Electricity is the flow of electrons from one atom to the next. As electrons travel through the filament of a light bulb the resistance of the filament opposes the flow of current, which creates heat. The filament will heat up so much that it produces a visible light.

You know it take 8.3 minutes for the suns light to reach the earth but how long dose the suns heat take to reach the earth?
Asked in The Difference Between
What is the difference between the way black and white surfaces affect light?
White surfaces reflect light and heat. Black surfaces do not reflect light and they absorb heat. White surfaces reflect light and heat. Black surfaces do not reflect light and they absorb heat. White surfaces reflect light and heat. Black surfaces do not reflect light and they absorb heat. White surfaces reflect light and heat. Black surfaces do not reflect light and they absorb heat.
