If photon is a particle then why do we associate wavelength and frequency with it?
Asked by Nishtha Sardana | 23rd Nov, 2014, 09:08: PM
Light radiation is made up of tiny packets of energy called quanta. One quantum of light radiation is called photon which travels with speed of light. Radiation has dual nature, it possessses properties of both wave and particle. Moving material particle acts as wave or particle. The wave associated with moving material particle is called matter wave which has wavelength also called de-Broglie wavelength is given as,
