A photon is a particle representing a quantum of light or other electromagnetic radiation. It carries energy proportional to the radiation frequency but has zero rest mass.

A photon, in simple terms, is "...a packet of energy" of electromagnetic radiation. The equation for the energy of a photon is E=hv where E is energy, v=frequency, and h=planck's constant.

Photons are basically particles of energy that make up light

A photon is a particle that functions as a packet of energy during electromagnetic radiation (including visible light and other rays on the electromagnetic spectrum). Its energy is related to the frequency of the radiation and can be found using the equation E=hv.
