To be clear here, My question arises from studying Electromagnetic induction and polarisation and photoelectric effect. From here I've gained the knowledge that creation of a photon involves:
- Electromagnetic Induction - The fact that a time varying spatial magnetic field which creates a closed loop electric field [Super Confusing as to why universe does that]
- Polarisation - In the books, they show that light is oscillating electric field vectors and magnetic field vectors
- Photoelectric Effect - Creation of light has something to do with an electron returning to a lower energy state, not saying that it's the only way.
So how does light get produced? I'm seeking in-depth explanation.
The question arose when I was talking to my friend about a hypothesis of mine where I was saying that If I released a photon from , say a torch. I could, under some known error margin, say at what instant the photon was created but according to what I've heard multiple times, time stops at light speed. So, any photon at 'c' would basically never had experienced any time. So, from the perspective of the photon, its birth can't be defined. We seem to reach a paradox here, if I observe a time at which the photon was created but the photon has no notion of time, it has no notion of a beginning or an end. Then, I tried to expand the concept of the hypothesis to say that maybe in a similar sense, the universe doesn't hold a concept of beginning or an end. As we experience it's perspective, we can't determine its birth time using our maths which has been cultivate throughout this universe, and we also know that maths do break down when we try to solve equations for the t=0 time of Big Bang. NOTE: This talk was just to have fun, I just like physics and like to talk about the universe, however, I understand that I might have just annoyed someone by ignoring a dozen of laws and theorems that I'm yet to find out about. APOLOGIZES!
I'm expecting a somewhat dumbed down explaination, now don't get too carried away by that. I'm a high school student but I do love a bit of technical mumbo jumbo but I'm just asking to keep in mind that I'm in high school. Example:
Say we have an equation: x3+x2-x+44=0 Instead of saying the degree of equation is 3 maybe say the highest power in the equation is 3.
