    1)
    Answer: e )7.30 x 10^14 Hz
    f = c / lambda
    where
    f=frequency
    c = speed of light = 3x 10^8 m/s
    lambda = 411 nm = 411x 10^(-9) m
    Therefore f = c / lambda =(3x 10^8 m/s )/ 411x 10^(-9) m= 7.30 x 10^14 Hz

    2)
    Answer: e 8.27 x 10^5 Joules
    E=h nu
    Where
    E= energy of photon
    h=Planck's constant= 6.63x10^(-34) joule-sec
    nu = frequency=6.91x10^14 Hz
    Therefore E=h nu = 6.63x10^(-34) joule-sec x 6.91x10^14 Hz
    = 4.58 x 10 ^ (-19) Joules
    This is the energy of 1 photon
    Energy of 3 moles of photons= 3 x (6.023 x 10^23) x 4.58 x 10 ^ (-19) Joules
    =8.27 x 10^5 Joules
    (1 mole = 6.023 x 10^23 particles)

    3) b) is not correct because the principal quantum number only determines the overall size of the orbital and not the shape of the orbital.
    a) is true because electron and proton in a hydrogen atom have opposite charges and since unlike charges attract , energy is required to move the electron away from the proton in the nucleus. Similarly c) , d) , e) and f) are true.

    4)
    Answer: b ) 4
    n=3, ml = -1
    For n=3 , l=1,1,2
    For l=1, ml =0
    For l=2, ml = -1,0,1
    For l=3, ml = -2,-1,0,1,2
    Therefore both l=2 and l=3 have ml = -1
    For each ml , we have 2 electrons ( with opposite spin quantum numbers)
    Therefore maximum no of electrons=2x2=4

    5) Answer b)
    n=4 , l=1 is 4 p

    6) 6)
    a) noble gas= Ar
    b) forms a 3-ion=P
    c) atom with smallest atomic radius=Ar
    d) atom with the highest ionization energy=Ar
    e) atom with 3 valence electrons= Al
    f) metal that most easily forms a 1+ cation = Na
    g) metalloid ( semi metal)=Si
    h) atom with ns2 np4 electron configuration=S
    i) the most positive electron affinity=Cl
    j) nonmetal with the most unpaired electrons=P
