inertron wrote:It would be interesting if such sympathetic vibration would explain resonances between photons and the electrons of absorbers/emitters. This could explain emissions/absorption spectra in terms of the tendency of one frequency of light to scatter into others and sympathetically resonate with other frequencies, etc. In music, this would be akin to a high C note being played and causing sympathetic vibrations of a lower C note, only as far as I know in music, one note/frequency can't scatter into other notes/frequencies when the wave interacts with various other strings of different tensions.
I don't know if the analogy with music would hold very well or whether some other resonance-rules could explain a similar pattern of interactions that nonetheless operate differently because the waves are electromagnetic instead of acoustic.
