Solution: In fireworks, the heat of the reaction of an oxidizing agent, such as KClO4, with an organic compound excites certain salts, which emit specific colors. Strontium salts have an intense emission at 641

Problem

In fireworks, the heat of the reaction of an oxidizing agent, such as KClO4, with an organic compound excites certain salts, which emit specific colors. Strontium salts have an intense emission at 641 nm, and barium salts have one at 493 nm. What is the energy (in kJ) of these emissions for 5.00 g each of the chloride salts of Sr and Ba? (Assume that all the heat produced is converted to emitted light.)
