Question

Name the radiations which are absorbed by greenhouse gases in the earth's atmosphere.


Solution

Some of the green house gases are  $$CO_2$$,  $$N_2O$$, methane, water vapor etc. These green house gases absorb the infrared radiations and re-emit them back to the surface of earth. this makes the earth to remain warm, otherwise without green house gases the earth would be a cold planet. But excessive presence of green house gases also effect the earth's climate in a bad way. It increases the overall temperature of earth which results in global warming.
