Problem 1.23

Postby Lily Guo 1D » Mon Oct 16, 2017 8:09 pm

Problem 1.23 gives the energy of gamma ray photons in kiloelectronvolts. Do we have to know the conversion between KeV and joules or do you guys think that energy will be given to us in J?

I believe the conversion is given on a sheet of constants and equations, which is attached to the tests. Here is the sheet: https://lavelle.chem.ucla.edu/wp-conten ... ations.pdf

Thank you so much! I didn't see that earlier.

The conversion between KeV and Joules will be given either in the problem or on the conversion/formula sheet. We are not expected to memorize the conversion.

1 eV = 1.6022 x 10^-19 J
