Swieter; p1 of 5 y CHM1040 Question Set #4 QUESTIONS ON THE PROPERTIES OF LIGHT 1. What are the wavelengths, in meters, associated with radiation of the following frequencies? a) 5.09 x 10 14 s -1 b) 8.6 x 10 12 s -1 c) 2.0 x 10 9 s -1 2. What is the frequency and energy (per photon) associated with radiation of each of the following wavelengths? a) 1.8 cm b) 480. Å (1 Å = 1 × 10 -10 m) c) 305 nm 3. What is the frequency and wavelength (in meters) of electromagnetic radiation with the following photon energies? a) 6.95 x 10 -20 J b) 5.96 x 10 -26 J c) 2.00 × 10 -15 J 4. Restate each of the following in the new units indicated and tell in which region of the spectrum it lies: Refer to the attached handout. Example: 5.00 10 15 s -1 to J. First, J is an energy unit and s -1 is a unit of frequency, ν . Therefore, since E = h·v, then, (6.6262 x 10 -34 J·s) × (5.00 x 10 15 s -1 ) = 3.31 x 10 -18 J. a) 150 pm to cm -1 b) 4000 cm -1 to J c) 1.50 x 10 15 s -1 to nm d) 10 cm to J e) 1.0 x 10 -18 J to s -1 f) 1.20 × 10 14 s -1 to cm -1 5. If each atom in one mole of atoms emits a photon of wavelength 650 nm, how much energy is lost? Express the answer in J/mol. As a reference point, burning gaseous CH 4 to form liquid water and gaseous CO 2 produces 890 kJ/mol of heat. 6. Compare the energy of an x-ray photon ( λ = 0.15 nm) with that of a microwave photon ( λ = 1.0 mm). 7. If the human eye receives a 1.59 x 10 -17 J signal from photons whose wavelength is 500 nm, how many photons have hit the eye? 8. Chlorophyll absorbs blue light, λ = 460 nm, and emits red light, λ = 660 nm. Calculate the net energy change in chlorophyll when a single photon of 460 nm is absorbed and one of 660 nm is emitted. 9. The lowest-frequency light that will produce the photoelectric effect on a material is called the threshold frequency . a. If the threshold frequency for Pt is 1.3 x 10 15 s -1 , what is the energy of a quantum of this radiation? b. Will platinum display the photoelectric effect when exposed to ultraviolet light ( λ ~ 100 nm)? Infrared light ( λ ~ 1.00 x 10 -3 cm)?
