I recently read about the Maxwell's laws of Electromagnetic Waves and I found that Light is made up of both Electric and magnetic fields.
So now if i pass the light through a capacitor such that the plates are parallel to the light will the light be deflected?
If it is deflected then what about the particle nature of light in which the photons are neutral without any charge(as far as i know charge do not exist without mass).
If not why are the electric and magnetic fields not affecting the light in the wave nature if it is solely due to the wave nature why are electrons being deflected in the external fields.
I hope someone give me a clear idea of what is wrong with my idea.
