An interaction between electron and photon.

An interaction between electron and photon. ? . . when there is a change of state the electron either releases or absorbs a photon and its location changes from one discrete energy pattern to another discrete energy pattern around the nucleus. . . . . these things, they are very well explained by the standard model of physics? / from an email / ==.. How can an electron ( slower than c ) emit photon at c=1? ==. Book: ' Now take the electron. Even if its velocity is close to that of light ? 10^10 cm/s ? it will have a momentum of only about 10^17 g cm/s. The gamma photon used for illumination has a very short wavelength ( say, 6 10^13 cm) and a momentum of 10^14, which is thousands of times that of the electron. So, when a photon hits an electron, it is like a railway train smashing into a baby carriage.?
/ Book: ABC?s of quantum mechanics. By V. Rydnik. Page 9899. / ==. .. This is ?very well explained by the standard model of physics? !! ?? Opinions, please. ===========,,,,
