A photon of an X-ray radiation has a wavelength of 5.50 Å. For the radiation, calculate the (a)frequency in Hertz, (b)the energy in Joules, (c) the energy in electron volts (eV) and (d) the energy in kJ/mol.

  • Analytical Chemistry -

    I would convert 5.50 A to meters, then
    c = frequency*wavelength to make the conversion to frequency.
    The others are just conversions. Look up the factors and convert.
    Post your work if you get stuck.
