A photon interacts with a ground state electron in a hydrogen atom and is absorbed. The electron is ejected from the atom and exhibits a de Broglie wavelength of 3.188×10−10 m. Determine the frequency (in hz) of the interacting photon.
frequency * wavelength=speed light
the wavelength is for electron, whereas the frequency of photon is needed
First find: E = P^2/2Me + E(first ionization)
P= h / BroglieWavelength
Once E is found the find frequency:
frequency(hz)= E / h
