How is electromagnetic radiation related to energy of the photon? Are they the same thing?
Electromagnetic radiation is usually tied with the wavelength and frequency of a particle. The ER of a photon is proportional to it's energy (Energy of a photon = h*frequency). The higher the frequency, the greater the energy and therefore, the greater its Electromagnetic radiation.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think electromagnetic radiation has to do with the wave-like properties of light, and photons have to do with the particle-like properties of light. You can still use properties of electromagnetic radiation (like frequency, wavelength) to calculate the energy of photons, so these models of light are interconnected.
