www.soran.edu.iq  Calculating the number of atoms in a given amount of a compound:  convert from grams of compound to moles of a particular atom to number of atoms. Let's try an example. Example: How many carbon atoms are present in (50.3 g) of (C 2 H 6 ). Solution: We started this problem in the above example, when we calculated the moles of ethane in (50.3 g ethane). To continuo, we need two additional conversion factors. One should represent the mole ratio between moles of( C ) atoms and moles of ethane molecules. The other conversion factor needed is Avogadro's number.

www.soran.edu.iq  Calculating the frequency and wavelength of an electromagnetic wave: All types of electromagnetic radiation move through a vacuum at a speed of about (3.00 x 10 8 m/s), which is called the speed of light( c), speed is an important property of a wave traveling through space and is equal to the product of the wavelength and the frequency of the wave. For electromagnetic waves : c = λv …………………….. (1). Equation (1) can be rearranged as necessary to solve for either the wavelength (λ) or the frequency (v). Example: A certain (AM) radio station broadcasts at a frequency (6.00 x 10 2 kHz). What is the wavelength of these radio wave in meters.

www.soran.edu.iq Solution: Step(1): solve the equation (1) algebraically for the wavelength (λ). c = λv Step (2): since the speed of light has units of (m/s). We must convert the frequency from units of (kHz) to (Hz)(s -1 ). 6.00 x 10 2 kHz x = 6.00 x 10 5 Hz = 6.00 x 10 5 s -1. Step (3): calculate the value of (λ) by substituting the known quantities into equation (2). λ = = 5.00 x 10 2 m. ……………………(2)

www.soran.edu.iq Example (2): What is the frequency of light that has a wavelength of (665) (nm). Solution: Step (1): solve equation (1) algebraically for the frequency (v). c = λv …………………..(3) Step (2): since the speed of light has units of (m/s). we must convert the wavelength from units of (nm) to (m). 665 nm x = 6.65 x 10 -7 m. Step (3): calculate the value of (v) by substituting the known quantities into equation (3).

The energy (E) of a single quantum of energy is given by: E = hν …………………..(4) h is Planck's constant = 6.63 x10 -34 J.s ν is the frequency of radiation. v =

www.soran.edu.iq Example: The yellow light given off by a sodium vapor lamp has a wavelength of (589nm), what is the energy of a single photon of this radiation. Solution: Step (1): you are given wavelength in this problem. Equation (4) shows the relationship between energy and frequency. However, there is a relationship between frequency and wavelength (see equation 3). Substituting for the frequency in equation (4), we have: ………5 Step (2): since the speed of light is in units of (m/s), we must convert the wavelength from units of (nm) to (m).
