1. Will a body emit infrared radiation if it's surrounding environment is at a 
higher temperature?

2. Is radiant heat absorption only absorbed by free(unbound) electrons within a 

3. Can bound electron photon absorption be converted to heat if the photon's 
energy is less than the ionization energy for that bound electron?
