Educator Resources for Molecules and Light

In Molecules and Light, students can explore how light interacts with molecules in our atmosphere, discover the properties of greenhouse gases and the importance of the ozone layer. Students identify how the absorption of light depends on the structure of the molecule and type of light, and relate the energy of the light to the resulting motion. Students can predict the motion of a molecule based on the the type of light it absorbs.
