Updated: 26th November 2019

The energy of an electromagnetic wave. The intensity of an electromagnetic wave is only related to its amplitude and not its frequency. A photon has the same wavelength as the wave that's carrying it, and its energy is .

In respect to this, what is the energy of electromagnetic waves?

In physics, electromagnetic radiation (EM radiation or EMR) refers to the waves (or their quanta, photons) of the electromagnetic field, propagating (radiating) through space-time, carrying electromagnetic radiant energy.

What kind of energy is transferred by electromagnetic waves?

Electromagnetic waves are waves that consist of vibrating electric and magnetic fields. They transfer energy through matter or across space. The transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves is called electromagnetic radiation.
