Answer to Question #58551 in Electromagnetism for hamid

Question #58551
why photons do not shock us as it have electric component?
Expert's answer
The photons - quanta of electromagnetic radiation. Photons move at the speed of light in vacuum. Photons carry the energy. Photons have no electric charge. Proof of this is the fact that photons do not deflect in electric or magnetic fields. Besides, they have electric and magnetic field components, but their amplitude are small enough to provide an large current or electrical breakdown in dielectric. However, high-energy photons may pull out electrons from atoms during interactions. And that’s why the photons do not electric shock.
