The frequency and wavelength of γ -ray photon with an energy of 1.173 M e V have to be calculated. Concept introduction: Planck’s equation, E = hν = hc λ where, ν = frequency λ = wavelength h = Planck's constant c = speed of light The energy increases as the wavelength of the light decreases. The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength. ν = c λ where, c = speed of light ν = frequency λ = wavelength

Solutions

Chapter 6, Problem 63GQ
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The frequency and wavelength of γ-ray photon with an energy of 1.173MeV have to be calculated.

Concept introduction:

  • Planck’s equation,

    E==hcλwhere, ν=frequencyλ=wavelengthh=Planck'sconstantc=speedoflight

The energy increases as the wavelength of the light decreases.

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

    ν=cλwhere, c=speedoflightν=frequencyλ=wavelength
