Microwave ovens emit microwave energy with a wavelength of 13.0 cm. What is the energy of exactly one photon of this microwave radiation?

  • Chemistry -

    E = hc/wavelength
    Convert wavelength to m

  • Chemistry -

    Use:
    E = hc/λ

    Where:
    Planck Constant: h = 6.62606957(29)×10−34J∙s
    Speed of Light: c = 2.99792458×10+9m∙s-1
    Wavelength: λ = 0.130m
