Planck proposed e n h ν n integer number of photons

This preview shows page 3 - 6 out of 7 pages.

Planck proposed: E = n h ν n = integer number of photons ν = frequency of emitted light h = Planck’s constant = 6.626 × 10 34 J-s c = λ ν c = speed of light = 3.00 × 10 +8 m/s Problem 12-1: What is the energy of a single green photon ( λ = 523nm)? Problem 12-2: What is the energy of one mole of green photons?
