Question

Calculate the energy of a photon, in J/mol, having wavelengths of

a) 400 nm and

b) 3.3 micrometers

Answer #1

a)

Apply Rydberg Formula

E = h c / WL

h = Planck Constant = 6.626*10^-34 J s

c = speed of particle (i.e. light) = 3*10^8 m/s

E = energy per particle J/photon

wL = wavleenght in m

E = h c / WL = (6.626*10^-34)(3*10^8) /(400*10^-9) = 4.9695e*10^-19 J/photon

1 mol = 6.022*10^23

then

(4.9695e*10^-19)(6.022*10^23) = 813481.963132 J/mol

b)

if WL = 3.3*10^-6 then

E = h c / WL = (6.626*10^-34)(3*10^8) /(3.3*10^-6) = 6.0236*10^-20 J/photon

E = 6.0236*10^-20 J/photon * 6.022*10^23 photons / mol = 36274.1192 J/mol

Calculate the energy in Joules for a photon with a wavelength of
400 nm. Report your answer to 4 significant figures using
scientific notation. (Ex: 1.345E-17 should be entered for 1.345 x
10-17)

Calculate the energy of a photon having a wavelength in the
following ranges.
(a) in the microwave range,
? = 6.00 cm
(b) in the visible light range,
? = 600 nm
(c) in the x-ray range,
? = 6.00 nm

Calculate the energy (E) in kJ/mol corresponding to the wavelength,
486.1 nm. (Careful with units! kJ / (mol) means we have 1 mol of
photons. The Rhydberg equations or Bohr model equation give the
energy for one photon and is in J, not KJ.

For 598-nm visible light, calculate its frequency (ν, Hz),
wavenumber (ν, cm^–1), and photon energy (J).

Calculate λ (in nm) for a photon with E = 2.68x10-15 J?

Calculate the energy, in joules, for a photon of 1024 nm
light.

Calculate the difference in energy (in joules) between a
photon with
λ
= 719 nm and a photon with
λ
= 339 nm. Enter your answer in scientific
notation.

Find the wavelength (in nm) of a photon whose energy is 6.70 ×
10-19 J.
The maximum wavelength that an electromagnetic wave can have and
still eject electrons from a metal surface is 507 nm. What is the
work function W0 of this metal? Express your
answer in electron volts.
In the Compton effect, an X-ray photon of wavelength 0.16 nm is
incident on a stationary electron. Upon collision with the
electron, the scattered X-ray photon continues to travel in...

Light containing wavelengths of 400 nm, 500 nm, and 650 nm is
incident from air on a block of crown glass at an angle of 48.6°.
(Assume crown glass has refractive indices of n400 nm = 1.53, n500
nm = 1.52, and n650 nm = 1.51.)
(a) Are all colors refracted alike, or is one color bent more
than the others? 400 nm light is bent the most 500 nm light is bent
the most 650 nm light is bent...
