### How is the wavelength of a EM wave related to its energy?

It isn't. There is, however, a relationship between the
wavelength, and the energy of an individual photon. The smaller,
the wavelength, the larger will the frequency be - and therefore,
also, the energy of a single photon.

### What is the relationship between the frequency of a wave and the amount of energy the wave carries?

The greater the energy,the larger the frequency&the shorter
(smaller) the wavelength.
Given the relationship between wavelength&frequency - the
higher the frequency,the shorter the wavelength-it follows that
short wavelengths are more energetic than long
wavelengths.

### What is the relationship between wavelength of light and the quantity of the energy per photon?

The energy per photon is directly proportional to the frequency;
the frequency is inversely proportional to the wavelength (since
frequency x wavelength = speed of light, which is constant); thus,
the energy per photon is inversely proportional to the
wavelength.

###### Asked in Physics

### What is the relationship between energy of a photon and its wavelength?

A high energy light will have a shorter wavelength than a low
energy light. If the wavelength goes down, then the frequency goes
up. When calculating energy in the equation, E=hv, frequency (v) is
the variable, not the wavelength. So in the equation, if you wanted
a more energy (E), you would have the frequency be large. For the
frequency to be big, then the wavelength has to be low.

###### Asked in Physics, Chemistry

### Why won't a very bright beam of red light impart more energy to an electron than a feeble beam of violet light?

Ok, so this goes back to the inverse relationship between
wavelength and frequency ( energy). As wavelength increases ,
frequency decreases, the relationship between the two is a inverse
relationship. the Red light, wavelength of approx. 700 m^-7 , has a
greater wavelength then of the blue light, 400m ^-7. This means ,
due to frequency and wavelength having an inverse relationship,
blue light has a greater frequency (energy) than red light. This is
why blue light, no matter how dim, will...
