I know the formula for energy of a photon
E = hf
Is there a similar formula for the energy of a gluon, the force carrying particle in strong force?
What about the W and Z bosons?
Gluon does not have a certain energy because its equation of motion is always non linear. If you want, its energy is changing all the time.
