Light has mass according to e=mc^2 light has mass. E=mc^2 HV=mc^2 HV/c^2=m H/c x wavelength=m By this formula we can see that mass of light is dependent on it cannot be constant.As wavelength of light lies between 400-700nm I calculated the maximum and minimum mass of light. Maximum mass of light =0.553x10^-32g Minimum mass of light =0.31×10^-32g Generally we think light is massless because photons are massless.But photons rest mass is zero and photons have mass when they are in motion.

No, not definite. But it might have. If it does its upper limit is roughly m < 1E-16 eV/c^2, which makes it a billion billion times less massive than the neutrino m < 2 eV/c^2 that was the least massive of all particle until, maybe, now.
