Molecules and Light

Does light affect molecules or does it go right through them? The simulation explores four different types of light: microwave, infrared, visible, and ultraviolet. Scholars alter the energy level of each as it is aimed at seven different molecules. The resulting motion analysis helps scholars predict the motion of other molecules.
