1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The energy of a photon is 5.87 x 10^-20 J. What is its wavelength in nanometers?

I use E = H(c/λ) Correct?

Since I am trying to find λ, I change it to this?

λ = H(c/E) ?

6.63x10^-34 x (3 x 10^8 / 5,87 x 10^-20)

= .000003

in nanometers, 3000

Is this correct? I don't think it is :(

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
