I noticed that Dr. Lavelle rearranged the formula of E=hv and c= λv in Fridays lecture to solve the problem given in class and he got E=hc/λ, do we always have to do this in order to solve the problem? how do we know we have to rearrange the equations?
I'm not sure that we'll always have to rearrange these equations, but for this problem we did because we were not given frequency (v). In order to find frequency we had to solve E=hv for v (v=E/h). The problem was asking for wavelength so we solved c=('lambda')(v) for lambda (lambda=c/v) and substituted v for E/h.
