I know that visible light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. It is made of photons. A photon is a packet of energy release by an electron when it is returning to a lower enery level or orbital after previously recieving the equivalent amount of energy that makes up the photon. My question is what are the other forms of radiations (radio waves, microwaves, x-rays, etc.) are made of? Are they made of photons too, but just with different amounts of energy?
