einstein equation and other equations

Postby Aryana Nazem 1A » Sun Apr 15, 2018 11:34 pm

what kinds of questions will we be asked to work out with this equation?

The Einstein relation connects the particular photon energy E with its associated wave frequency:
E = hv

I used this equation several times in class today and Friday.

For example in lecture today, we were asked to calculate the frequency of light emitted by a hydrogen atom as an electron moves to a different quantum level. Without Einstein's equation we wouldn't be able to connect the energy of a photon to calculate the frequency.

The equation can also be used to find E(photon) in the photoelectric effect equation.
