6th Edition: Problem 1.9

For this textbook problem, it asks us to fill in the blanks for the missing portions of a chart (frequency, wavelength, energy of photon, and event). When I was comparing my answers, I didn't really know how to find the "event" of the corresponding frequencies and wavelengths in the chart. How do you get to these solutions using your given information: suntan, reading, microwave popcorn, and dental x-ray?

I used the chart that was found a few pages before the questions to identify which event correlated to which wavelength. I'm not sure if we have to memorize those sections though.

Re: 6th Edition: Problem 1.9

You can determine the event by the frequency, wavelength, and energy based on a chart earlier in the chapter. I don't think that you will have to know these numbers, but you should know the range of visible light (400 nm to 700 nm).
