Calculating frequency and energy of single photon, and energy of Avogadro's number of photons


Error message

Warning: Illegal string offset 'theme_pager_link' in cleanpager_theme_registry_alter() (line 338 of /home/yeahchemistry/public_html/sites/all/modules/cleanpager/cleanpager.module).

Microwave radiation has wavelength on the order of 1.0 cm. Calculate the frequency and the energy of a single photon of this radiation. Calculate the energy of an Avogadro's number of photons of this radiation.

frequency = speed of light/wavelength.

Energy of photo = hcf where h=Planck's constant, c= speed of light and f=frequency

Enegy of 1 mole of photons = Lhcf where L=Avogadro constant
