    Find the energy carried by one photon and multiply by Avogadro's number.

    In terms of frequency the energy carried by a photon is:

    [tex]
    E=h \nu
    [/tex]

    Where h is Planck's constant and [tex]\nu[/tex] is the frequency. So you have to express the frequency through the wavelength.
