Problem 21CQ

Why don’t we feel the momentum of sunlight when we are on the beach?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 21CQ

The wavelength is inversely proportional to the momentum of photons and hence due to large wavelength the momentum experienced is small.

= 6.6 x10-26 J.s/m

This value of momentum is very small and hence we don’t feel the momentum of sunlight when we are on the beach.
