    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 ...
