from the midterm booklet

The energy required to break a C-C bond in a molecule is 348 kj*mol^-1.
will visible light be able to break this bond? If yes, what is the color of that light?
If not, what type of electromagnetic radiation will be suitable?

Why is Avogadro's number involved in the process of solution?

Avogadro's number is involved because the value given is the energy needed to break a mole of C-C bonds. To determine the energy needed to break one bond, you have to divide by Avogadro's number.
