  • Q12
    A student conducts an experiment to see how light can change the temperature of water in cups. She shines a YELLOW light on a white, a yellow, and a black cup, each filled with water. She measures the temperature of the water once before she begins and again after two hours. The results of her experiment are shown in the attached table. Why is there no change in the temperature of the water in the yellow cup or the white cup?
    Question Image
    The yellow cup is absorbing the light because the cup and the light are both yellow; the white cup is absorbing the light because white objects absorb all colors.
    The yellow cup is absorbing the light because the cup and the light are both yellow; the white cup is reflecting the light because white objects reflect all colors.
    The yellow cup is reflecting the light because the cup and the light are both yellow; the white cup is absorbing the light because white objects absorb all colors.
    The yellow cup is reflecting the light because the cup and the light are both yellow; the white cup is reflecting the light because white objects reflect all colors.
