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 0.468×10−10 m. Determine the frequency (in hz) of the interacting photon.

  • Chemistry -

    frequency*wavelength=speed of light

  • Chemistry -

    not correct answer - this is a de Broglie wave ;)

  • Chemistry -

    First find: E = P^2/2Me + E(first ionization)

    P= h / BroglieWavelength

    E(first ionization)=21.7*10^-19

    Me= 9.1*10^-31

    h= 6.626*10^-34

    Once E is found the find frequency:

    frequency(hz)= E / h

  • Chemistry -

    5.032*10^15

  • Chemistry -

    1.71*10^17

  • Chemistry -

    It is wrong rex.
