Light : Is Light a Wave or Bundle of Energy ?

By Maxwells Classical Theory of Light, Light is a wave, by to Planks quantum Theory,Light is emmited in smal packets of energy caled “photon”.
Some Properties of Light r Explained Properly By Huygens theory, which had dawbacks,Which were corrected by maxwell
Propetries of Light Such as relfection, refraction, polarisation, Diffraction, INTERFERENCE are explained by wave thory, Light Behaves as electro magnetic radiation
Some other Phenemenon like Photoelectric effect are explained by Quantum theory, Which states that one photon is Min amout of energy dat r emmited by a source.
We know that Nothing can escape the black Hole, not even Light, Wht do u think gets pulled in the black hole? the WAVE ? or photons ? Since photons are particles of matter ?
Rutherford model of h2 atom Failed, it was baised on maxwells wave theory,bohrs model of h2 atom is correct. Bhor formula (which depends on plank Q theory) is “1/λ = R(1/p²-1/n²)” in formula Wavelenght is involved. Why how ?

  1. Both. ANY WAVE HAS ENERGY ASSOCIATED WITH ITSELF.
    A wave is a disturbance that propagates through space or spacetime, often transferring energy. While a mechanical wave exists in a medium (which on deformation is capable of producing elastic restoring forces), waves of electromagnetic radiation (and probably gravitational radiation) can travel through vacuum, that is, without a medium. Waves travel and transfer energy from one point to another, with little or no permanent displacement of the particles of the medium (there is little or no associated mass transport); instead there are oscillations around fixed positions.
    Light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength that is visible to the eye (visible light) or, in a technical or scientific context, electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength. The elementary particle that defines light is the photon.
    The modern theory that explains the nature of light is wave-particle duality, described by Albert Einstein in the early 1900s, based on his work on the photoelectric effect and Planck’s results. Einstein determined that the energy of a photon is proportional to its frequency. More generally, the theory states that everything has both a particle nature and a wave nature, and various experiments can be done to bring out one or the other. The particle nature is more easily discerned if an object has a large mass, so it took until an experiment by Louis de Broglie in 1924 to realise that electrons also exhibited wave-particle duality. Einstein received the Nobel Prize in 1921 for his work with the wave-particle duality on photons, and de Broglie followed in 1929 for his extension to other particles.
    ALWAYS KEEP DUAL NATURE OF LIGHT IN MIND.
    it solve all the problems.

  2. Ok well.
    the nature of light is really an odd one to accept… Light possesses what is known as ‘wave-particle duality’, which means that under some circumstances light behaves as if it were a wave, and in some circumstances it behaves like a particle.
    We can only really work with what we can observe, so while we can’t at the moment say it is only one or the other, it is most accurate to use the ‘wave-particle duality’ handle.

  3. FIRST I THINK LIGHT IS A WAVE WITH A BUNDLE OF ENERGY.
    As u have asked, i think the energy particles or particles made up of energy r pulled in the black hole.
    about rutherford, u gotta try some other websites.
