What is the relationship between energy and the wavelength of an electromagnetic wave? I really need help because I know that the shorter the wavelength of an electromagnetic wave, the higher the frequency of the wave..but I don't know how this is relevant to energy.
Thanks x

1. Energy and wavelength are inversely related.

Energy= constant/wavelength
