HW ch1 question 5

Postby Nabeeha Khan 1D » Sun Apr 15, 2018 4:30 pm

How do you find the increasing order of energy of radiation for the photons listed in question 5 from the ch1 hw?

So energy of radiation for the photons increases with an increase in its frequency, meaning the photons with higher frequencies will have higher energy of radiations.

Please post full details of the question if you want to ask a question about the book questions so everyone can understand without having to open the book.

The question from the textbook says: Arrange the following types of photons of electromagnetic radiation in order of increasing energy: -rays, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, microwaves, x-rays.

Like the student above, said you know that the speed of light, c, equals lambda*v(the frequency), thus if you have a smaller wavelength, you will have a higher frequency with relates to a higher energy since E=hv. Thus, the higher the frequency, the higher the energy.
