I mean to ask that :-
1. When light is absorbed by opaque materials what actually
happens I suppose that its electrons take that light energy (
photons )and go to another permanent quantum state. Does this
cause a change in the material itself ?
2. on absorbtion of light energy by opaque materials can we say
that the light energy has been converted into chemical energy ?
