Louis de Broglie posited that if light can have material properties, conversely, matter should exhibit wave properties. He demonstrated that the relationship between mass and wavelength was as follows… For light: E = mc2 E = hν = hc / λ Therefore, mc = h / λ and for particles : (mass)(velocity) = h / λ OR… The wave nature of matter λ = h mv

Photodissociation of water, H2O (l)  H2 (g) + O2 (g), has been suggested as a source of hydrogen gas. H rxn for the reaction is 285.8 kJ per mole of water decomposed. Calculate the maximum wavelength (in nm) that would provide the necessary energy for this reaction to occur. Laser light as energy for reaction

Microwave ovens operate using radiation of wavelength λ= 12.0 cm. How many moles of photons are required to raise the temperature of 345 g water from 26.5 to 99.8 oC?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
