This will be the energy of only ONE photon and will have to be multiplied by Avogadro s number to convert it to the energy of one mole of red photons. The wavelength needs to be converted to meters before performing this calculation: " 34 (6.626! Js)! (3.00! E = 1m nm! 9 nm J! 1kJ 00 J = kj 8 m/s) = 2.632!
