I am trying to sort out my understanding regarding Photons. I understand the Electromagnetic Spectrum contains all radiation (energy) in all wavelengths (light) consisting of Photons. This can be broken down into Photons involving Waves and Packets- Electric and magnetic fields. The more Packets of Photons = the faster the wavelength which is the same as higher frequency/closer wave peaks.
My best at understanding Electrons involves Electrons not creating energy themselves, but rather, simply act as a way to transport energy and have different levels of energy. I can also go as far as to say that when a level of energy is shifted closer or away from the Electron, the result is a shift in Light emitted as a reaction from the shift- and therefore; Photons are at work to represent the change in light within the Spectrum. I am looking at the EM Spectrum and focusing on the part I work with, Radio Waves, I can go into the endless theory which modern technology is based off of to create electronics, circuitry, and wireless propagation of radio waves transmitted and received from antennas.
THIS IS MY QUESTIONS: If the EM Spectrum makes up all frequencies what is the connection between Photons and Electrons in electronics, mainly in RF Propagation? I am still new to quantum mechanics and my goal is to understand Photons. My cup is empty and any help would be greatly received. I admit I am still learning and I apologize ahead of time for trying to get a grasp on my lack of understanding. If Photos have no mass, yet make up the EM Spectrum through wavelength and packets and if Electrons have atomic mass and make up Radio Theory as we know it today then how is any of this even possible? How does the Electron have a relationship with the Photons to make RF Propagation work? The only theory I can ponder are Photons are the waves which Electrons ride on to pass/conduct energy which circuits use...? I won’t even ask what is Energy (at its start in the raw birth), rather just simply accept something provides a form of power/current/charged atoms which are manipulated to interact with electrical devices.
Or, am I simply at trying to understand an ongoing division between normal physics with Hertz and Electrons vs Photons and QM?
Any help would be amazing.
