|Class 12 Physics Dual Nature Radiation Matter||Photon Picture of Radiation|
Here, v = frequency, λ = wavelength, c = speed of light, and h = Planck’s constant
Here symbols have their usual meaning.
The photoelectric effect proves the particle nature of radiation. Whereas, the phenomena like interference, diffraction, and polarization proves the wave nature of light. Hence, we can say that radiation displays both, wave nature, and particle nature, meaning a radiation possesses wave-particle dualism.
