This rapid warm up of the car is due to greenhouse effect. The sun’s radiant energy passes through the car’s windows and some of the energy is converted into heat or infra- red radiation. Molecules of greenhouse gases behave very much like the glass in car windows or in a greenhouse. In a sense, the greenhouse gases from a glass window over the earth.
