## Main Question or Discussion Point

I know formula ## p=\frac{h}{λ} ##

How to describe most general EM- field in terms of photons? Is there always discrete number of photons? If EM field is given in terms of

a)EM-vectorfield:

E

for any x,y,z and one T.

b) potentsials and loren(t?)z gauge

then what are momentums of photons?

- p is photon momentum
- h is plankc constant
- λ is EM-wave wavelenght
