just a thought.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

if the energy of a photon E= hf.

and an electron can receive or loose photons in such energies only.

and the electron can not absorb half of the photon then the other half just a full quantum at a time.

doesn't that mean is some sort of way that there is no time elapsed relative to the electron between starting the absorption and end of absorption.

because if there was then we can write a formula that says the electron absorbed the photon in a time dt= tf -ti

so then ti + ( dt/ 2) is half the time so if the equation is linear then half the energy was absorbed by that time...

please add your comments on this

i do not have a strong background in general relativity just special.

so if this is tackled somewhere please explain

thanks
