Is light the compilation of photons? What is their relationship to one another? I need clarification....

Yes, light is a large amount of photons traveling at the same frequency and wavelength. These photons can sometimes behave as a wave, and sometimes they can behave as a particle. Hope this helps!

Light's behavior can be explained by both the wave model and the photon model. The wave model indicates the inverse relationship between frequency and wavelength, and the photon model explains that light energy is directly proportional to frequency, and that light energy is quantized, not continuous.
