1 eV= 1.602x10^-19 J

So the energy in joules E(J) is equal to the energy in electron-volts E(eV) times 1.602x10^-19:
E(J) = E(eV) × 1.602176565x10^-19

Will we get this conversion, if needed, on the sheet of paper for the quiz, or do we have to memorize this?

This conversion would be provided if you needed it. It's on the constants and equations sheet on the Chem 14A website.

On the test, does it matter what units we provide our answers in as long as they are correct?
