**Problem Statement:**How does the Higgs field “give mass”

**Relevant Equations:**The exact way that particles interact with the Higgs field and therefore create mass.

I’m trying to figure out how the Higgs field works, one problem is that while I originally though of the Higgs field like a medium that resists motion which therefore creates mass, I found that that is not the case. So how exactly does the Higgs field give mass? Where does the energy come from to give mass? Why don’t particles like the photon and gluon interact with the Higgs field?
