## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello everybody, im new here :)

what exactly is the energy of the wave? how to think about it generally, in electromagnetic waves and in relation to amplitude? I can think about the kinetic or potential energy that a particle can get from that kind of wave or the sum of all such energy in all particles under wave's influence but im not sure what's the intuition behind this term. also how can we derieve its proportion to the amplitude of the wave?
