### Which color absorbs more heat?

• A.

Red

• B.

Black

• C.

Purple

• D.

White

B. Black
Explanation
Black absorbs more heat because it absorbs all wavelengths of light, converting them into heat energy. This is due to the fact that black objects have a higher level of absorption and lower level of reflection compared to other colors. In contrast, colors like white reflect most of the light, resulting in less heat absorption. Therefore, black is the color that absorbs the most heat.
