Can these two things disperse photons?What can disperse photons?

  1. May 10, 2012 #1
    For question 1.

    Can a wind blade that cuts at a cellular level disperse or effect photons?

    Can a person who can turn objects into dust affect the photons at all?

    What types of things can disperse photons?

    Did you mean atomic level? At which point, they don't exist. Wind's just the motion of air, so the blade would have to be made of particles about the size of the ones you want to cut. Try cutting a ball in half with a knife as blunt as the ball.

    Again, I'm pretty sure people who can turn objects into dust don't exist.
