Chapter 1 Problem 7b

Postby Lucian1F » Mon Oct 09, 2017 8:42 pm

"When an electron beam strikes a block of copper, x-rays with a frequency of 2.0 x 10^18 Hz are emitted. What is the wavelength (in picometers) of these x-rays?" I got an answer of 150 pm but the back of the book says 150 nm. I'm pretty sure this is just a typo, especially since the question explicitly states to answer in picometers but the answer given is in nanometers, so I was just wondering if anyone can confirm if this is indeed a typo?

Yes, you are correct. It should be 150 pm. The solutions manual has it corrected.

I had the same question, thanks for clarifying!
