Quiz 1, Question 5
Posted: Mon Oct 31, 2016 8:13 pm
Could someone please explain how to do question 5 on quiz number 1? Fluorescence is the property in which molecules absorb and emit light where the photon emitted is lower energy than the photon absorbed. The energy unaccounted for is dissipated across the molecule. Diphenylanthracene (DPA) is a molecule of interest in solar technology because of the light it emits when excited. If a molecule of DPA is excited by 350 nm light and emits 425 nm light, how much energy did the molecule dissipate in joules? Thank you.
