ANSWER: CDE Exposure of a Photographic Film
Description: Find the maximum wavelength to which a silver bromide (AgBr) emulsion is sensitive. Also,
given the energy of a photon, determine its color.
Photographic films are simply polyester or acetate sheets coated with a light sensitive emulsion. The
emulsion is composed of several layers of small crystal grains of silver salts suspended in a gelatin base.
The silver  salt crystals act as photon detectors; when they are exposed to light, a photochemical reaction
takes place. The light energy is absorbed by the crystal, initiating a process of dissociation of the silver  salt
molecule. This chemical reaction eventually leads to formation of stable metallic silver atoms.

What is the wavelength of a photon of frequency ? ANSWER: Express your answer in nanometers to three significant figures.
ANSWER:
= Silver bromide based emulsions are naturally sensitive only to short wavelengths in the violet  blue
spectrum. To widen the range of light sensitivity, photographic emulsions are normally treated with
special sensitizing dyes. Part B
The addition of small amounts of dyes to the emulsion lowers the minimum energy needed to initiate the
process of dissociation of the silver  salt molecule. Thus treated emulsions become more sensitive to
photons with what sorts of wavelengths and energy?
Hint B.1 Energy of a photon Recall that the energy of a photon is inversely proportional to its wavelength.
ANSWER: shorter wavelengths and higher energy
longer wavelengths and higher energy
shorter wavelengths and lower energy
longer wavelengths and lower energy Part C
In color films, there are separate layers of photosensitive emulsion for each of the three primary colors of
emitted light (red, blue, and green). The process of film exposure is again based on absorption of light
energy, but now each layer is treated to react to only one third of the spectrum. For example, the redsensitive emulsion is specially treated to react to light only in the portion of the visible spectrum that
http://session.masteringphysics.com/myct/assignments?courseID=1035557 Page 5 of 11 Assignments 4/23/11 2:36 PM includes longer wavelengths. When a single photon of energy 2.89×10 −19 strikes a color film, in what layer of emulsion will it be absorbed ?
Hint C.1 How to approach the problem From the energy of the photon, you can determine its wavelength. Recall that the visible wavelength
range is 400 to 700 nanometers. Typical wavelengths are 680 nanometers for red light, 550 nanometers
for green light, and 450 nanometers for blue light.
