Problem

Octyl methoxycinnamate and oxybenzone are common ingredients in sunscreen applications. These compounds work by absorbing ultraviolet (UV) B light (wavelength 280–320 nm), the UV light most associated with sunburn symptoms. What frequency range of light do these compounds absorb?

Solution

The relationship of wavelength and frequency will appear as:

Using the wavelength range given, 280-320 nm, frequency range will be calculated using the equation above and by converting the values to the proper units
