The awkward spin of an electron escapes rational understanding. But by principles from my previous study, the spin is portrayed as a dual spin?with one spin perpendicular to the other. A dual spin as such serves to explain the emission of photons, along with their wave-like pattern, and the speed limit c. Planck's radiation law and the photoelectric effect are also discussed.
