(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the energy of the photon is determined by which properties:

a)wavelength

b)intensity of the beam

c)speed of pgoton

d)polarization

e)frequency

2. Relevant equations

E=hf=hc/lambda

3. The attempt at a solution

My first answer to this problem is E)frequency because of the equation E=hf. but then again, i thought about the equation c=lambdaf wherein the wavelength and frequency are related. And i'm confused because I only need to select an answer. would wavelength affect a photon's energy or is it dependent on its color? thanks
