Textbook Problem

An advertising sign gives off red light and green light.

  1. (a) Which light has higher-energy photons?
  2. (b) One of the colors has a wavelength of 680 nm, and the other has a wavelength of 500 nm. Which color has which wavelength?
  3. (c) Which light has the higher frequency?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Among green light and red light, the colour having the higher energy photons should be identified.

Concept introduction:

  • Electromagnetic radiations are a type of energy surrounding us. They are of different types like radio waves, IR, UV, X-ray etc.

  • The red light and green light lies in the visible light where it is between 400nm and 700nm.
  • Planck’s equation,

  E==hcλwhere, E=energyh=Planck'sconstantν=frequency

The energy increases as the wavelength of the light decrease. Also the energy increases as the frequency of the light increases.

  • The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength.

  ν=cλwhere, c=speedoflightν=frequencyλ=wavelength

Explanation

E=hcλ so the energy increases as the wavelength of the light decrease

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Among green light and red light, the colour having 500nm and 680nm wavelength should be identified.

Concept introduction:

  • Electromagnetic radiations are a type of energy surrounding us. They are of different types like radio waves, IR, UV, X-ray etc.

  • The red light and green light lies in the visible light where it is between 400nm and 700nm.
