Answer

a. No b. Yes

Work Step by Step

a. A beam of many IR photons can contain more energy than a beam of relatively fewer UV photons. Though an individual UV photon has more energy than an individual IR photon, because E = hf and UV light has a higher frequency. b. An individual UV photon always has more energy than an individual IR photon, because E = hf and UV light has a higher frequency.
