nm vs m

Postby Alysia Garcia 1B » Mon Apr 16, 2018 12:14 pm

In the video module on the photoelectric effect, he converts the wavelength in meters to pica meters. Do we always have to convert to pica meters when solving for a wavelength?

Wavelengths are generally given in nanometers (nm).

Depends on what the question is asking for.

I think the problem will be clear if it prefers a different unit over nm.
