Collision Of Electromagnetic Energy And Matter
a: The interaction of a charged object and an electric field ~
b: the sea lifting and dropping a ship
What: "Your analogies for visualizing the interaction are nice: The classical interaction of a charged object in a changing electric field (like the water molecule dipole in the microwave) is like the sea lifting and dropping a ship. The interactions of quantum photons with other quantum particles are better thought of as 'impacts.'"........see the link for the rest..
