The wavelength and frequency of an emitted photon of gamma having the energy of should be calculated using the relation between speed, wavelength and frequency of a wave and Planck’s quantum theory.
A wave is a disturbance or variation that travels through a medium transporting energy without transporting matter. The wavelength is the distance between identical points on successive waves. The frequency is the number of waves that pass through any particular point in 1 second.
The speed, wavelength and frequency of a wave are related by the equation: where are expressed in meters () and reciprocal seconds () respectively.
Planck’s quantum theory
To find: Calculate the wavelength and frequency of an emitted gamma photon having the energy of
