To determine

The way in which the heating of the car’s interior on a hot summer day could be prevented.

Explanation

It is known that the radiations reaching the Earth’s surface are of short wavelength, while the reflected radiations from the surface are longwave radiations. Such radiations are not capable of escaping into the space rather they get absorbed by the greenhouse gases, which in turn raises the surface temperature of the Earth.

A same kind of increase in temperature might take place in a closed car. The solar radiation flowing through the car windows gets absorbed into the interior and are re-radiated in the form of thermal infrared energy (long waves)...
