A friend asked me if a photon has a wavelength. What is an entry-level
yet accurate way to answer her question?
What I suggested was that light can be viewed as a particle or a wave, and
that the wavelength determines the energy in the light. Meanwhile
light-as-photons is also energetic, but I think the energy of photons is
expressed some other way.
Am I close? I'm a little embarrassed not to have an easy (and correct!)
answer all ready... hope someone will help me out.
