The \(quantum \ photons\) are not as easy as you think!You have to read a lot of books and visit many sites!Then you will give your answer...

haha :)

I think you don t want to answer me :)

@E.ali what u think the answer could be ?

  • anonymous
What about you ?

There are some experiments that can not be explained by considering light as wave and also there are some other experiments that tells that light is wave. And now we know that it's not either wave or particle but it's both wave and particle. And which nature you are going to encounter that depends on the experiment you are doing. May sound strange and not convincing but you have to accept it. There are some very classic experiment in history that leaded to quantisation of energy. for example, Black body radiation, photoelectric effect, Compton effect etc. It was seen the the interaction or exchange of energy is not continuous as in the case of typical wave interaction but rather it was found discrete and instantaneous. Not only this there are so many arguments in the favor of particle nature of light. If you are interested you must read De Brogile's Ideas for dual nature of matter.

@wini_boson , It was great! i want to know more about this and you said "If you are interested you must read De Brogile's Ideas for dual nature of matter" how can I know more about this book?do you know any sites about this?
anonymous
  • anonymous
What book ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
not book
anonymous
  • anonymous
"his Ideas"
chmvijay
  • chmvijay
Hey its basic of Science @PFEH.1999 hey nice paragraph by @wini_boson
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry, it's not a book it's a hypothesis made by De Brogile. You just google "de broglie dual nature of matter".
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you very much :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
you cant ask my question yet !!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks:) @chmvijay
chmvijay
  • chmvijay
its photoelectric effect is that right ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
anonymous

@E.ali , What exactly is your question? We gave you alot of information but you are still saying "You didn't answer my question"!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Haha . My question answer is one word . yes or no ?!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
you think "What exactly defines the photon nature of light?" is a Yes/No question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
What you mean by 'yes or no'?
chmvijay
  • chmvijay
its good you both @PFEH.1999 and @E.ali should read the fundamental of this subject
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes,I will read it ;) but do you know a good book of this subject?
chmvijay
  • chmvijay
first read the ur school TEXT book then i will give u a book on the following subject OK @PFEH.1999
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is the light photon or wave or both of them ?!
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok... I found this book,is it good?

@E.ali , both of them @wini_boson said...
chmvijay

both of them

@ all : how ?

If you read it,you wouldn't ask this question: "There are some experiments that can not be explained by considering light as wave and also there are some other experiments that tells that light is wave. And now we know that it's not either wave or particle but it's both wave and particle. And which nature you are going to encounter that depends on the experiment you are doing.

:D @chmvijay , was that book - that I attached - good or not?

good one :)

The concept of a photon came up because it was found that in interactions of electromagnetic waves with matter a discrete amount of energy equal to hv ( where h is Planck's constant and v is the frequency of the radiation) is transferred. This bundle of energy is called a photon.
