Microwave radiation is absorbed by the water in food. As the water absorbs the heat it causes the food to get hot. If the λ of a microwave is 10 cm, calculate the frequency of the microwave and the energy of each photon.

  • Chemistry -

    speed of light = frequency x wavelength.

    E = hc/wavelength.
