IS LIGHT A FORM OF MATTER

IS LIGHT A FORM OF MATTER OR IS IT SOMETHING ELSE ?

Asked HARSHA SEKHAR

Answer:

Light and matter possess dual nature. Means they have properties of matter as well as waves at the same time. So, if we say that light is a form of matter or vice versa, it cannot be falsified.

Light (which is a form of radiant energy) and matter are inter-convertible too. matter can be converted to energy and vice versa.

The energy released by the complete conversion of a mass “m” of any matter is given by Einstein’s equation, E = mc2
