Problem: What is the energy of a photon of light with a wavelength of 575 nm?

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to determine the energy of a photon of light with a wavelength of 575 nm.


Recall that for the energy of a photon of light, we use the following equation:


E = h·ν


Where:


ΔE = Energy change

h = Plank's Constant = 6.626x10-34 J•s

v = frequency
