🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Ki's class at Stockton University.

Solution: The energy of a photon of light is given by E = hv. The frequency, v, of light and the wavelength, λ, are related through: v = c/λ where c is the speed of light, 2.998 x 108 m/s. Arrange the following wavelengths of light from lowest energy to highest energy: 461 nm, 637 nm, 517 nm.  What is the energetic of a photon light with a wavelength of 415 nm?
