A Time-dependent Local Representation of Energy

Authors: Constantinos Ragazas

Whereas globally energy propagates continuously as a wave, in this note we consider that energy can be represented locally by an exponential of time. Using such representation we are able to show that Planck's Formula for blackbody radiation is an exact mathematical identity. We are also able to explain the photoelectric effect without the photon hypothesis and derive an equation relating the photoelectric current to the intensity and frequency of radiation. This equation conforms well with graphical characteristics of the actual experimental data. Moreover, this representation of energy explains the quantum hypothesis, provides a simple intuitive explanation of the double-slit experiment and permits a definition of the temperature of radiation. It also explains the physical meaning of Planck's constant h and why it exists.
