HW 1.7 6th Edition Part B

Postby Hadji Yono-Cruz 2L » Thu Oct 11, 2018 3:58 pm

1.7 (a) The frequency of violet light is 7.1 " 1014 Hz. What is the wavelength (in nanometers) of violet light? (b) When an electron beam strikes a block of copper, x-rays with a frequency of 2.0 " 1018 Hz are emitted. What is the wavelength (in picometers) of these x-rays.

The answer for part b in the book is 150 nm, but the question says to convert to picometers. I think the nm in the book is a typo and it should be 150 picometers instead.

Agreed, that's what I put as my answer as well

Same, I solved it and ended up with 150 picometers too.
