Electromagnetic Radiation Absorption and Molecular Effects

ORGO1-2R1UHM

Molecules can absorb different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. When an absorption occurs, the molecule undergoes a change in a specific energy state depending on the frequency of the electromagnetic radiation.

Absorption of microwave radiation corresponds to changes in

states.
Absorption of ultraviolet-visible radiation corresponds to changes in

states.
Absorption​ of infrared radiation corresponds to changes in

states.
