Lesson Worksheet: Converting between Wavelength and Frequency Chemistry
In this worksheet, we will practice using the speed of light to convert between wavelengths and frequencies of electromagnetic waves.
A uranium-237 nucleus decays, emitting a gamma ray with a wavelength of 5.96 pm. What is the frequency of the gamma ray?
- A Hz
- B Hz
- C Hz
- D Hz
- E Hz
Microwave ovens use electromagnetic radiation with a frequency of 2.45 GHz to provide heat. What is the wavelength of this radiation?
Chlorophyll strongly absorbs light with a wavelength 680 nm. What is the frequency of this light?
Microwave ovens use electromagnetic radiation with a frequency of 2.45 GHz to provide heat. What is the energy per photon of this radiation?
