So I am told that a photon in a light beam has an energy og 2,12 eV. First i have to calculate the energy of it in joules, and since 1 eV is 1,60*10^-19 Joules 2,12 eV in joules is just 2,12*1,60*10^-19 = 3.392*10−19 J i got that.

Then i have to calculate the frequency of the light beam. I use the equation E = hv and just isolate v to get v = e/h. When i then plug in the numbers i get v = 3.392*10−19/6.63*10^-34(plancks constant) = 5.12*10^14 seconds. But isn't that a huuuge frequency? Anything I've done worng?

Thanks in advance!
