On a hot sunny day....

why is the chrome fender of a white convertable car with its top down cooler to touch, than its dark red plastic seats?
Is it because the lighter the color is, the less heat is absorbed?

why id an asphalt sidewalk warmer to touch on a sunny day than a concrete sidewalk?
I don't know this one

Please help.

    Yes, light colors reflect more heat than dark colors.
    Asphalt sidewalks are black, right? And that's a dark color, right?
