3. Wave vs Particle

3.1. Wave: As a wave, electromagnetic radiation is characterized by velocity, wavelength, and frequency. The velocity is the speed of light.

3.2. Particle: As a particle, electromagnetic radiation is characterized as a photon. Each has an energy related to the frequency of the wave. This is given by Plank's relation, E=hv

3.2.1. E=Energy of the photon

3.2.2. h=Planck's constat (6.626x10^-34 J*s)

3.2.3. v=frequency of the wave
