Hello, I have read here and many other places that light energy is a function of its wavelength. What about its amplitude? If photon A is 1 angstrom at 1 arbitrary unit of amplitude how can it have more energy than photon B at 2 angstroms and 1x10^55 units of amplitude? If this were sound energy, as in a speaker, the reproduction of an G at 100dB has more energy than a G# at 1dB. Please help me to understand my misconceptions. Thank You DM
