Main Question or Discussion Point
Hello everyone. I have been looking for a book or any article where I can get a good description about classical theory of energy transfer from electromagnetic field to a particle. I am particularly interested in how much work is done by the field when it interacts with the partciel (for example, interaction of light with atom/molecule). I want to know if there is a force . displacement approach to calculate the energy transfer from field to partciel. Please let me know. Thanks a lot.
