# How does photon energy change with increasing frequency?

Mar 31, 2017

Increases

#### Explanation:

Consider the following equation:

$E = h f$

Where $E$ is photon energy, $h$ is Planck's constant, and $f$ is frequency. As you can see, with increasing frequency, you should get an increasing energy.

This makes sense, as wavelengths with greater frequencies carry greater amounts of energy (ex. consider why gamma rays - that have a really high frequency - can be dangerous).

Hope that helps :)
