  1. 1.Infrared radiation has wavelengths ranging
    from about 800 nm to 1 mm. What is the
    frequency of radiation of wavelength 970 nm?
    Answer in units of s−1

    Convert nm to m and use c = f*w.
    c is speed of light in m/s, solve for f(requency) and substitute for w(avelength).<?b>

    2.Microwaves, such as those used for radar and
    to heat food in a microwave oven, have wavelengths
    greater than about 3 mm. What
    is the frequency of radiation of wavelength
    4.75 mm?
    Answer in units of s−1

    same procedure as #1.

    3.Sodium vapor lamps, used for public lighting,
    emit yellow light of wavelength 560 nm. How
    much energy is emitted by an excited sodium
    atom when it generates a photon?
    Answer in units of J.

    E = hc/wavelength

    4.How much energy is emitted by 45.8 mg of
    sodium atoms emitting light at this wavelength?
    Answer in units of J.

    mols Na = grams/atomic mass = ? mols.
    E = hc/wavelength. That gives E in joules/1 atom. That x 6.02E23 = joules/1 mol. That x # moles from above = total E.


    5.How much energy is emitted by 1 mol of
    sodium ions emitting light at this wavelength?
    Answer in units of kJ.
