Problem 76AE

If you put 120 volts of electricity through a pickle, the pickle will smoke and start glowing orange-yellow. The light is emitted because sodium ions in the pickle become excited; their return to the ground state results in light emission. (a) The wavelength of this emitted light is 589 nm. Calculate its frequency. (b) What is the energy of 0.10 mol of these photons? (c) Calculate the energy gap between the excited and ground states for the sodium ion. (d) If you soaked the pickle for a long time in a different salt solution, such as strontium chloride, would you still observe 589-nm light emission?

Problem 76AE

If you put 120 volts of electricity through a pickle, the pickle will smoke and start glowing orange-yellow. The light is emitted because sodium ions in the pickle become excited; their return to the ground state results in light emission. (a) The wavelength of this emitted light is 589 nm. Calculate its frequency. (b) What is the energy of 0.10 mol of these photons? (c) Calculate the energy gap between the excited and ground states for the sodium ion. (d) If you soaked the pickle for a long time in a different salt solution, such as strontium chloride, would you still observe 589-nm light emission?

                                                        Step by step solution

Step 1 of 4

a)

We know, frequency;

                                                          ...............................(1)

Where, c = velocity of light

               

     = 589 nm

     

By putting these values in the above equation we get,

                                                           

                                                           

Therefore, the frequency of emitted light is .
