69. (a) In the lasing action the molecules are excited from energy level E 0 to energy level E 2 .T h u st h e wavelength λ of the sunlight that causes this excitation satisFes E = E 2 E 0 = hc λ , which gives (using the result of problem 3 in Chapter 39) λ = hc E 2 E 0 = 1240 eV · nm 0 . 289 eV 0 =4 . 29 × 10 3 nm = 4 .
