  1. E = h*frequency

    I would convert 419 kJ/mol to J, then divide by 6.022 x 10^23 to convert to J/atom, substitute into the equation and solve for frequency.

  3. 419 kj into jules =
    419000

    Divide by avogadro's number

    419000/6.022e23

    Divide that by Planck's Constant for the answer.

  4. V=E/h so (149000/(6.026x10^-34)(6.022x10^23) =1.05x10^15. s^-1
