Question

What is the number of photons of light with a wavelength of 4000 pm that provide 1 J of energy?

Solution

Energy (E) of a photon = hν

Energy (En) of ‘n’ photons = nhν

`=> n = (E_nlambda)/(hc)`

Where,

λ = wavelength of light = 4000 pm = 4000 ×10–12 m

c = velocity of light in vacuum = 3 × 10m/s

h = Planck’s constant = 6.626 × 10–34 Js

Substituting the values in the given expression of n:

`n= ((1)xx(4000xx10^(-12)))/(6.626xx10^(-34)) = 2.012 xx 10^(16)`

Hence, the number of photons with a wavelength of 4000 pm and energy of 1 J are 2.012 × 1016

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
