Relevancy of light to Chemistry

Postby longjump » Tue Oct 09, 2018 9:54 pm

Can someone explain why light and photons and such are taught in chemistry instead of physics? It seems like beams of light don't have that much to do with chemicals because photons are not chemicals. A little clarification would be really nice, thanks.

Hi! I'm going to guess that you need to first understand the properties of light before you can fully understand the nature of an electron (through understanding how the photoelectric effect works), and subsequently the nature of an atom.
