Determine energy of photon when frequency is given

Submitted by chartanye on Fri, 03/29/2013 - 23:54

How do I determine the energy of a 300nm photon? 

Energy = hc/wavelength where h= Planck's constant, c= speed of light. You will need to match units of length as c is in m/s and wavenlength is in nanometer (10^-9 m)
