- Does $E = mc^2$ apply to photons? 2 answers
I am only 14, so I don't know much about physics, and I would appreciate help on this topic.
A photon, is said to have 0 mass. However, they carry energy, as electromagnetic radiation. Albert Einstein proved that $E = mc^2$. But if you plug the data in, $E = 0\times (299791)^2$, you try to multiply the speed of light squared by $0$. Therefore, the energy of a photon would be $0$. How is that possible? Since all the photon does is carry energy?
