Does radiant energy produce heat energy when it strikes matter?

To the extent to which the energy is absorbed, yes. Reflectivity and color determine how much energy is absorbed, but no matter can reflect 100% of the energy striking it. Some will be absorbed by the molecules.

Describe the requirements for a material to be classified as a sedimentary rock?

Sedimentary rocks have three main types that reflect their origins: Detrital chemical and biochemical.

Which material will the sun heat up the slowest?

Something that reflects the heat, like a mirror (something light or shiny) - materials that reflect a large proportion of the incident radiation are said to have a high albedo (or reflection coefficient).The material that has the highest specific heat (hydrogen)The material that is in thermal contact with cooler surroundings or that is not isolated from the surroundings)The material that has the most compact shape (a solid block will heat up slower than a thin sheet)

Do dark rocks absorb more heat than light rocks?

Dark rocks will absorb more radiant heat than light rocks, for the same reason that any dark object absorbs more heat than an equivalent light object. Light objects appear "light" to us because they reflect more light than objects which appear dark. Dark objects appear dark because they absorb more light and reflect less. However, dark objects will radiate more heat that light objects. Actually, dark rocks do NOT absorb more radiant heat than light rocks. Nor do they radiate more heat than light rocks. Dark rocks DO absorb more LIGHT than light rocks and they then radiate this light at heat. Light rocks reflect the light rather than absorb it and therefore do not radiate as much heat. If you put a light rock and a dark rock next to a HEAT source, the amount of heat absorbed will be related to the makeup of the material rather than to the color.

Is it true that shiny materials absorb radiant energy?

I believe that shiny surfaces reflect radiant energy.

Do shiny materials reflect or absorb radiant energy?

The shiny materials are said to reflect most radiant energy. That's what gives them the quality of being shiny. Generally speaking, shiny materials are reflecting most of the light striking them, and this translates into the fact that shiny materials generally do not absorb radiant energy.

Is tinfoil a good insulator?

No, it conducts heat well. However it does reflect radiant heat.

Why does a good absorber of radiant energy appear black?

In short, because they "don't reflect'." A matte surface isn't smooth; it has a surface that does not fully reflect light/radiation; the surface looks dull because there's little reflection. A smooth surface will reflect because it's smooth (glass-like) and will reflect or bounce light away from its surface. The surface looks shiny because of the reflection. The color of the surface matters because the darker the color, the more light/radiation is absorbed. Lighter colors reflect light; darker colors absorb light.

Why was the radio named as such?

The "radio" is named as such to reflect the type of energy used to cause the radio instrument to operate. That being "Radiant Energy."

What happens to radiant heat when it falls on a body?

The way a body reacts to incident radiation depends upon the absorptive, reflectivity and transitivity. These are functions of the type of material and its color. For example black color metal would reflect more radiation than a black coloured plastic.
