What is the energy in joules and eV of a photon in a radio wave from an AM station that has a 1530-kHz broadcast frequency?

To determine

Energy in joules and eV of a photon in a radio wave.

Explanation

Given:

Frequency of wave =f=1530 kHz = 1530000 Hz                            (Since 1k = 1000)

Energy of photon =E=?

Plank's constant =h=6.63×1034 Js = 4.14×1015 eV

Formula Used:

Energy of photon is given as

  E=hf

Calculation:

Energy of photon is given as

  E=hf

Inserting the values

  E=(6.63×1034)(1530000)E=1
