Photons of Light

Postby Daisylookinland » Sun Oct 14, 2018 12:24 pm

I understand that a photon of light is like a "packet" of energy, but is there any sort of numeric value to a photon?

The numeric value of a proton will depend on the frequency of the wavelength since the formula to find the energy of an electron is: E=hv. Since h is a constant (Planck's constant) the value will differ depending on the frequency.
