same like walls and buildings until falls down....
So its the total energy of the beam that is relevant not the energy of individual photons, whenever this matter is mentioned the actual frequency of the radiation is always quoted but it could just as well be from the 198kHz Droitwich radio station as from a gamma ray source if the power was the same.
Do you mean like the Sun's rays "pushing" on the vanes of a Crookes radiometer (aka "light mill") shown below? sourceHow scientists found the reason behind the "pushing".
i think alpha decayrays can push objects not gamma rays is it correct ....
