In the simplest term radiation is heat. This is because it's not the KE associated with a molecule or atom.

Radiance is heat, and only if it is absorbed, resulting in thermal energy.

Radiation is not heat. There is often this confusion between these words. Radiation can mean electromagnetic energy, protons, electrons, or simply the particulates of an explosion.

Radiance is about light specifically.

You are correct, however, in that heat is not the KE associated with a molecule or atom.

You've already stated that heat "is". What you posted is just more of your ramblings. It's difficult for me to say you taught me anything when I find nothing of value in your posts.
You seem to be contrary just to dock with someone. Has anyone watched I Robot ? tin seems to think he's the computer in that movie.

You've already stated that heat "is". I don't consider you to know science.


We already knew of your opinion.
