E = h x ν E = 6.63 x 10 -34 (J s) x 3.00 x 10 8 (m/s) / 0.154 x 10 -9 (m) E = 1.29 x 10 -15 J E = h x c / λ 7.2 When copper is bombarded with high-energy electrons, X rays are emitted. Calculate the energy (in joules) associated with the photons if the wavelength of the X rays is 0.154 nm.
E photon = 2.18 x 10 -18 J x (1/25 - 1/9) E photon = E = -1.55 x 10 -19 J λ = 6.63 x 10 -34 (J•s) x 3.00 x 10 8 (m/s)/1.55 x 10 -19 J λ = 1280 nm Calculate the wavelength (in nm) of a photon emitted by a hydrogen atom when its electron drops from the n = 5 state to the n = 3 state.
