Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For a electron to change orbits and integer quantity of photons must either be accepted or release, this is a consequence in quantum mechanics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We consider Both photon and electron as particles. But how photon as a particle is associated with electron.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's known as the It's known as the Einstein photo electric effect. The release of electron from a material depends on the frequency which gives the photon it's energy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Light can be though a wave, Maxwell Equations, or as a particle called a photon who's energy is planks constant times frequency. When a photon with appropriate energy strikes a electron it well change orbits

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1According to quantum mechanics you only know a specific area in which a electron may be, therefore the energy is distributed.
