See the related question. The Infrared black body radiation is emitted by the Earth.
Being at rest is a relative term. Relative to earth we are at rest when we are sitting down. However, you are moving because the earth is moving its orbit around the sun.
Yes, about 26% of incoming solar radiation is reflected back into space by the clouds and atmosphere.Incoming solar radiation: 100%Reflected by the atmosphere: 6% : Absorbed by the atmosphere: 16%Continuing incoming solar radiation: 78%Reflected by clouds: 20% : Absorbed by clouds: 3%Continuing incoming solar radiation: 55%Reflected by the earth's surface: 4% : Absorbed by the earth's surface (lands and oceans): 51%
rest or motion is a relative concept,if u r on earth dn its in rest n if u r at some other planet then wrt it is in motion
some of the radiation is absorbed in the atmosphere
Regardless of what time it may be, day or night, at any place on earth . . . -- Part of the solar radiation incident on the moon is absorbed into the illuminated portion of the surface. -- The rest is reflected from the surface, back into space. Actually, a lot like what happens on the earth, when you think about it
It is reflected back out into space (e.g off clouds)It is captured by plants in photosynthesisIt warms the air and makes the weather systems on Earth and the ocean circulationsIt becomes trapped (over time) as fossil fuels.
approx 25% is reflected approx 20% is absorbed approx 55% pass through to Earth's surface (it burns) supposedly
The suns energy when it reaches the earth's atmosphere encounters earth's plasma and three things happens. Some of the energy is reflected , some is absorbed and the rest is transmitted to the earth.
About 50% of the incoming solar radiation reaches the surface of the planet. The rest is reflected or absorbed by the atmosphere & clouds, and a small portion is reflected by the oceans and land.
well some of it is refllected back into space by our magnetic field. the rest of it just hits the earth
What happens to Solar Energy is that some of it gets absorbed into air, land and water while the rest gets reflected back to space.
I assume you mean the radiation from the Sun. Most of this radiation goes out into space, and it just continues going on and on. A tiny part of this will eventually be absorbed by some planet, star, dust, or gas; but most of it will just continue going.
The average solar radiation hitting the planet is considered to be about 352 watts/meter squared. Total radiation hitting our atmosphere is about 1366 watts/meter squared. The rest of this energy is absorbed or reflected by the atmosphere.
The air that you breathe out mixes with the rest of the air in your general vicinity, and will eventually mix with all the air in the Earth's atmosphere.
