Textbook Problem

(a) Find the momentum of a 4.00-cm-wavelength microwave photon. (b) Discuss why you expect the answer to (a) to be very small.

To determine

(a)

The momentum of a 4.00 cm -wavelength microwave photon.

Explanation

Given info:

  λ=4.00 cm

  h=6.63×1034 Js1

Formula used:

For momentum in photon, the relation between photon and wavelength is

  phλ

Calculation:

Value of wavelength is in cm convert it into m.

  λ=4.00×102 m

Now momentum of photon is

  p6

To determine

(b)

The answer to (a) to be very small.
