Electromagnetic radiation and light

Light is a electromagnetic radiation. It travels in wave form with infinite number of energy pockets called “photons”. As we all know, a wave form has amplitude, frequency and wave length as its main parameters.

The speed of all electromagnetic radiation or EM waves in vacuum is 299,792,458 meters per second. So no matter what the parameters are, if waves start from a point at a time, they will reach the other point at the same time.

We use the number 273 (273.15 exactly) to convert from Celsius to Kelvin and vice versa.
