8.9) The terminology of different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum is given in the text. Use the formula E = hv (for energy of a quantum of radiation: photon) and obtain the photon energy in units of eV for different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. In what way are the different scales of photon energies that you obtain related to the
sources of electromagnetic radiation?

S safeer

E=h\nu=\frac{hc}{\lambda}

E=h\nu=\frac{6.6\times 10^{-34}\times3\times10^8}{\lambda \times1.6\times10^{-19}}eV=\frac{12.375\times 10^{-7}}{\lambda}eV

Now substitute the different range of wavelength in the electromagnetic spectrum to obtain the energy

EM wave one wavelength is taken from the range Energy in eV

Radio

1 m 1.2375\times10^{-6}

Microwave

1 mm 1.2375\times10^{-3}

Infra-red

1000 nm  1.2375

Light

500 nm 2.475

Ultraviolet
