Why are the photons that emerge from the Sun's surface visible-light photons and infrared-light photons rather than gamma-ray photons?
Photons do not come in different types like infared-photons etc. they are just the wavelength that the photons are at and nuclear fusion just happens to emit photons at a particular wavelength ...

Are photons difficult to detect?
Generally, photons are very easy to detect. Your eyes do a good job of detecting photons within a certain frequency band, as photons constitute light and other electromagnetic radiation. Individual photons are impossible to detect with modern technology. ...
What are light photons made of?
Photons are not know to be made up of any smaller particles. Photons are not know to be made up of any smaller particles. Photons are not know to be made up of any smaller particles. Photons are not know to be made up of any smaller particles. ...

What do infrared photons do when they hit glass?
When they're incident on glass, infrared photons do the same things that photons of other wavelengths do ... some are reflected, some are absorbed, and some are transmitted. How many of the photons undergo each process depends on the energy of the photons and the chemical composition of the glass. ...
Asked in Physics
If blue photons have higher energy than green photons why does green light carry the most energy?
Maybe there are more Green Photons than Blue Photons to overcome the Blue Photon energy advantage. ...
What is the mass of all photons from the sun striking the Earth in a year?
Mass of photons? Zero, photons have no mass. If you mean energy, that is a different question, ask it. ...
What color of the rainbow has the highest energy photons?
The rainbow color with the highest energy photons is violet. The rainbow color with the lowest energy photons is red. ...
