Textbook Problem

In the 1980s, the term picowave was used to describe food irradiation in order to overcome public resistance by playing on the well—known safety of microwave radiation. Find the energy in MeV of a photon having a wavelength of a picometer.

To determine

The photon energy in MeV having a wavelength of a picometer

Explanation

Given info:

The wavelength is given

  λ=1.00pmλ=1.00×1012m

Formula used:

The energy can be calculated as

  E=hcλ

Calculation:

Substituting the values, we get

  E=6.63×1034J/s×3×108m/s1
