Energy of Photons

Postby Brian Chhoy 4I » Thu Oct 11, 2018 10:31 am

Hi,
I've seen some questions where they list the energy of the photon in keV. Is this similar to an electron volt (eV)? and how would you convert this to joules?

Hi!
I would think keV is 10^3eV. And for the eV, I attached a picture.
