Since the energy of a photon is expressed as momentum times its velocity, we define kinetic momentum of a photon as [p.
kin], m, v and E denote respectively the kinetic momentum, mass, velocity, and kinetic energy of the electron.
Firstly, we note the known fact [6] that a particle with the electric charge q and the kinetic momentum [[?
