Infrared radiation is when earths surface radiates some of earths surface back into the atmosphere
infrared radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation, which involves waves rather than particles. This means that unlike conduction and convection radiation can even pass through the vacuum of space.
infrared radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation which is emitted in the form of heat. infrared radiation is invisible
