Photoelectric Effect, why is it instantaneous? Could it be relative to the reason why there is no concept of time in the subatomic world?
One of the big problems of the photoelectric effect is when light comes in contact with the surface of matter it should take a finite amount of time to absorb enough energy to knock out an electron. But no time lag is ever detected and the process is instantaneous, as soon as light comes in contact with the surface an electron is emitted. Mainstream physics has no explanation for the instantaneous emission of electrons. But if the process that we see and feel has ‘time’ with the ever changing world of our everyday life his formed by the spontaneous absorption and emission of photon energy. With an uncertain future unfolding with each new photon electron coupling or dipole moment it can make logical sense. A simple example of this is water with hydrogen bonds breaking and reforming releasing photon energy with the future unfolding photon by photon within the reference frame and relative to the flowing water. The same process can be seen in environmental temperature variations in photon energy forming an infinity of snowflake diversity. This potential can be seen in the infinite diversity of snowflake formation with no two snowflakes being identical. Another example is Photosynthesis the scientific ability plant life has to use sunlight or photon energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. Basically the entire trick of photosynthesis is to form a concentration gradient between positive and negative charge with the future unfolding relative to the structure of the plant with the movement of that charge. The light photon of quantum mechanics is the carrier that forms the movement of charge and flow of electromagnetic fields. In this theory quantum physics and classical physics are different aspects of the same process with the mathematics of quantum mechanics representing the physics of ‘time’ as a physical process. Newton’s classical physics is based on differential equations that are basically about the difference between some quantity now and its value an instant into the future. Therefore we have classical physics explaining processes over a period of time in our everyday life.
