Waves carry energy (frequencies), not matter.
Secondary seismic waves travel slower than primary waves but they are much more destructive. Thus it carries more energy.
photons carry radiant energy. Photon: whose energy depends on the frequency of the waves.
You can make a beam of any kind of radiation that carries any amount ofenergy you want.But each infrared photon carries more energy than any infrared photon, andeach infrared photon carries more energy than any microwave photon.
high frequency, short wavelength
