Wavelength Calculations

I don't understand where the numbers in the numerator came from that were placed in the equation of the first given example of the lecture. (6.626x10^-34Js)(3.00x10^8m.s-1).

Re: Wavelength Calculations

The both are constants. The first number, h, is Planck's constant whereas the second number, c, is the speed of light. And for reference, the formula is

Re: Wavelength Calculations

To add to the previous response, we will only be given the equations for E=hv and c=λv, which we must combine to produce E=hc/λ on the test.

Re: Wavelength Calculations

When we combine the equations E=hv and c=λv, we get E=hc/λ. Hence, we get the constants, h, Planck's constant (6.626x10^-34Js) multiplied by c, the speed of light (3.00x10^8 m/s).

Re: Wavelength Calculations

Will all constants be provided on the test?

Re: Wavelength Calculations

Yes all of the constants will be provided on the test. You should go to the website and find the formula sheet and get familiar with it.
