1A 3 Chemical Principle 7th edition

Postby Ziyan Wang 3J » Thu Oct 10, 2019 10:24 am

Could anyone explain that why decreasing frequency of light leads to the decreasing extent of change of electromagnetic radiation?

Decreasing frequency of light leads to less energy per photon, (E=hv). So I think that the extent of the change in the electrical field at a given point decreases because the energy of the light (electromagnetic radiation) has decreased. Or another way is that the electric field vector's height have decreased as a result of decreasing frequency because the wavelength has gotten longer.
