Why don't we feel the momentum of sunlight when we are on the beach?

Expert Solution
To determine

The reason due to which the momentum of sunlight cannot be felt when we are on the beach.

Explanation of Solution

Introduction:

Sun light is composed of photon, so the momentum of the sunlight is given in relation with the wavelength of the light falling.

  phλ

Momentum of photon received from sun given in relation with the Energy and velocity of light

  pEc</
