# Calculate the frequency in hertz of a 1.00-MeV γ -ray photon.

To determine

The frequency in hertz of a 1.00 MeV

γ -ray photon.

Explanation

Given info:

â€ƒâ€ƒE=1.00Â MeV

â€ƒâ€ƒh=4.14Ã—10âˆ’15Â eVâ‹…s

Formula used:

For frequency of a Î³ -ray photon, the relation between energy and frequency is

â€ƒâ€ƒEâ‰ˆhf

Calculation:

Substituting the given values of frequency in relation with time, we get

â€ƒâ€ƒf=1T

Relating the values value of hertz in relation with second, we get

â€ƒâ€ƒfâ‰ˆ1sfâ‰ˆHz

Substituting the given values of energy and Planck's constant, we get

â€ƒâ€ƒf
