Integrated Concepts

Suppose an MRI scanner uses 100-MHz radio waves.

(a) Calculate the photon energy.

(b) How does this compare to typical molecular binding energies?

(a)

To determine

The photon energy

Explanation

Given Data:

Given that MRI scanner uses 100MHz radio waves

Formula Used:

Energy and frequency are related as follows:

  E=hv

Where E= Energy

  h= Planck's constant

  v= Frequency

Calculation:

We have h=6.626×1034J.s and v=100MHz

Thus, photon energy is calculated as

  E=6.626×1034J.s100MHz

  E=6.626×1034J

(b)

To determine

How does the calculated photon energy compare to typical molecular binding energies?
