IR radiation explained

IR radiation, or infrared radiation, is a type of electromagnetic radiation that has longer wavelengths than visible light, but shorter wavelengths than microwaves. IR radiation is commonly associated with heat radiation and is emitted by the sun, as well as by fires, light bulbs, and electronic devices and other warm objects, including the human body. 

IR radiation can be harmful if a person is exposed to it in excessive amounts. Prolonged exposure to high levels of IR radiation can cause burns and damage to the skin and eyes, similar to the effects of exposure to sunlight. This is because IR radiation can penetrate the skin and heat up the underlying tissues, causing damage. In addition, exposure to high levels of IR radiation can also lead to dehydration and heat stroke. This is because the body absorbs the heat energy from IR radiation, leading to an increase in body temperature.

It is important to take proper safety measures when being exposed to IR radiation, such as wearing protective clothing and eyewear. It is also important to limit exposure to excessive levels of IR radiation in order to avoid the harmful effects it can have on the body.
