Question

What is a photon?


Solution

The photon is a subatomic particle of visible light. It is a smallest discrete amount or bundle of electromagnetic energy having no mass or electric charge. It is the basic unit that makes up all light.

 Photons are  always in motion  and, in a vacuum, travel at the  speed of light.
