Wave particle duality

Share with:


Let n and m denote the number of photons emitted by a red and blue bulb respectively of equal power in a given time.Is n=m?


Answer:

No

The energy of a photon is hν

where ν is the frequency.

Power = energy/time

==> nhν1 = mhν2

==> nν1 = mν2

clearly n not equal to m
