If a photon has no mass, how can it eject electrons by hitting them?

Even though photons are not massless, they do have momentum and energy.

Both momentum and energy must be conserved. Photons absorb their energy, and need to continue to move through particles of mass.

You can find photon momentum by using:

You can find photon energy by using:
