Which has the greatest energy, a photon of infrared light, visible light or ultraviolet light?

Einstein's equation for the photoelectric effect, E = hf (where E is energy of a photon, h represents Planck's constant and f is the photon's frequency), indicates that the energy of a photon is di... Read More »

Can you heat a building with just infrared heat?

No, infrared heat is generally not efficient for heating an entire building. Because of its radiant heating process, it is best used for small space heating, materials drying or curing.References:... Read More »
