1

How is the energy of a photon related to the frequent of the electromagnetic radiation?

E = hv

where v is the frequency of electromagnetic radiation
h is Plancks constant

2

What can E=hv be used to work out?

The difference in energy between various levels in the hydrogen atom.

3

How is the wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation related to frequency?

v = c/lambda

where c is the speed of light
