A photon is the smallest possible packet of electromagnetic radiation with energy equal to $hv$. Therefore, frequency is directly proportional to the energy of a photon and wavelength is inversely proportional to the energy of a photon.

Work Step by Step

The energy of a photon can be given by the following equations: $$E=hv$$ $$E=\frac{hc}{\lambda}$$
