Help with #1.33 part C

Postby Kyra LeRoy 1E » Tue Oct 17, 2017 4:48 pm

When you have
E(photon)=1.66x10^-17 +(1/2)mv^2
why do they plug in (3.6x10^6) as v in the solution manual, when the given value in the problem is 3.6x10^3?

Thanks!

3.6 x 10^3 is km/s but the SI unit should be meters and not kilometers. Therefore, you must convert km/s to m/s so that all the units cancel out in the final equation.
