    isn't Planck's equation working?

    Energy= plancksconstant*speedlight/wavelength

    You will have to get energy per electron, or

    energy= 1.76E3*1E3avagradros number to get energy in joules/electron

    opps, division sign disappeared.

    energy= 1.76E3*1E3/ avagradros number to get energy in joules/electron
