Photon Energy

When chemical quarks are considered, we can define photons that include no baryonic and no leptonic quarks, just rotating and electrochemical quarks. These photons are not gamma-rays. They are x-rays, radio-waves and all the photons in between; ultraviolet, visible and infrared. Their energies are typically measured in (eV), rather than (keV).

From the penultimate equation in the discussion of the mechanical energy of photons

$\begin{align} E \left( {\large{\gamma}} \right) = 2 \left| \, H_{chem}^{\mathcal{A}} \vphantom{{H_{chem}^{\large{\gamma}}}^{9}} \right| \cdot \left[ \frac{64}{\left( \Delta n^{\sf{D}} \right)^{2} } - \frac{64}{ \left( N^{\sf{D}} \right)^{2} } \right] \end{align}$
