Solution: Complete this table for visible light.

Problem

Complete this table for visible light.

Solution

In order to complete each column of the table for visible light, we need the equations that relate each property.

First, frequency (ν) and wavelength (λ) are related to each other through the speed of light (c), with a value of 3x108 m/s:



Second, the energy (ΔE) and frequency (ν) are related through Planck’s constant (h), with a value of 6.626x10-34 J*s:

Third, the color of the light can be determined more easily from the wavelength, since the visible spectrum ranges from color violet (390 nm), trough blue, green 500 nm), yellow, orange, until red (at 780 nm).
