Homework 1.23

This question confused me at first, but I noticed in the solutions manual that they converted keV to Joules. Does anyone know if this is something we need to know how to do, because we never learned it.

I don't think we need to know the exact conversion, because all of the conversions will probably be given to us on the equations sheet. However, it would be helpful to know how to convert from kEV to Joules as general practice.

Re: Homework 1.23

I believe the conversion will be given, but the conversion is 1ev=1.602x10^-19J and in problem 23 you would have to first convert it from Kev to ev.
