Regarding electromagnetic energy, it is true that ' a. wavelength is one half the height from peak to crest solar radiation is "short wave radiation." c. the Earth's radiation is of shorter length. on average, than the Sun‘s d. longwa—ve radiation is more energetic than shortwave radiation e. the Earth absorbs most shortwave radiation at night 16. The albedo of an object is the percentage of light that it - a.--- --absorbs b. scatters c. transmits reflects e. retracts i7. Kirchhoff‘s law a. ' only applies to blackbodies b. gives the wavelength of maximum energy emission 0. states that the rate of energy emission from an object is proportional to the fourth power of the temperature d.‘ applies to the Sun, but not the Earth , 6) an object that absorbs certain wavelengths well will also be a good emitter at that wavelength 18. In the Northern Hemisphere, the longest days occur around the ' a. autumnal equinox I I 7 _ - V a Vital-ragga“ r ‘ ‘ ' C finimmataicegelg l}; (1. winter solstice - e. period of aphelion 19.
