Hey all, my first post here. I'm 17 years old and am taking physics at A level. (Just finished my end of year exam today) So the understanding I have of light is that it is the oscillation of an electric field and of a magnetic field perpendicular to eachother. I've come to the conclusion that light can not be a wave because of it's particle nature. I understand how phasor arrows give a better explanation than the wave explanation. I know light as an oscillation of those 2 fields but I think of it as discrete packets of energy. I think of the photon as energy and once the energy is transferred the photon is gone. How can light be a photon (discrete packets of energy) and the oscillation of those 2 fields at the same time? My understanding of the electric and magnetic field tell me that these fields are only present where there is electrons. So should light not then be electrons? I know that sounds stupid but I think im missing a fundamental point here.
