Chlorophyll present in green leaves


Chlorophyll present in green leaves of plants absorbs light at 4.620 × 1014 Hz. Calculate the wavelength of radiation in nanometer. Which part of the electromagnetic spectrum does it belong to?


Relation b/w wavelength and frequency can be expressed as :

λ = c/ν, where c be the velocity of light and ν is the frequency of the radiation.

For the given problem λ = 3 x 108 ms-1 / 4.620 x 1014 Hz

= 0.6494 times10-6m-1
