Answer:

not 0 not 1

Explanation:

the mass of a photon of light is 0 grams at rest and thus the photon has no mass. When a photon is released by a source it travels at the speed of light c approx (#3*10^8#) m/s.

at this speed the mass of the photon is calculated by the equation

m(o) = #(m(i))/(sqrt(1-V^2/C^2)#

m(i) mass at rest
m(o) mass at speed
hence the mass of a photon when moving is #0/0#

Gravity can only act on a mass. As light passes around a planet or star or gravitational body, it bends. This bending of light can only be caused if the photon has mass. Thus #0/0# is not equal to 0.

Also look at the affect of light on what is called a light sail.

Answer:

Indeterminate

Explanation:

When you have a fraction, let say #20/4# you find 5 as the result because 5 x denominator is the numerator (#5xx4=20#)

When you have #0/0# whichever number #a# you put as a result verifies the fraction because #0 xxa=0#. For this reason it is imposible to determine the result. This is the reason because is called indeterminate
