Calculate the wavelength (in nm) of light with energy 1.83×10−20 J per photon.
For light of wavelength 450 nm, calculate the number of photons per joule.
Enter your answer in scientific notation.
Determine the binding energy (in eV) of a metal if the kinetic energy possessed by an ejected electron (using one of the photons with wavelength 450 nm) is 2.93×10−19 J.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Wavelength can be calculated using the given equation:
