Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1434429760324:dw You know h,c and lamda (435nm) energy value comes in joules so use energy and eV conversion value and find the value in eV that is 1.6 * 10^19 J =1eV Energy u got from above= 1eV* 1.6 * 10^19 J /Energy did u get it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1E = (3.00 * 10^8 m/s)(6.63 * 10^34 J*s)/435 nm Is that it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I tried to understand how other people were explaining it and got this: 435 nm = 435 * 10^9 m E = (6.63 * 10^34 J*s) (3.00 * 10^8 m/s)/(435 * 10^9 m) E = 4.57 * 10^19 J (4.57 * 10^19 J) (1 eV/1.60 * 10^19) = 2.86 eV E5  E2 = 0.544  (3.403) = 2.86 eV
