## 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.
