What is the frequency of a photon of energy 58eV?

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

    What is the frequency of a photon of energy 58eV?

    2. Relevant equations

    E=hF

    where H is Planck's constant, 6.63x10^-34



    3. The attempt at a solution

    58/ (6.63x10^-34) = 8.75e34

    that is not correct.

    Do i have the energy eV into a certain unit?

    When in doubt, put everything in units of MKS (meters, seconds, and kg).

    MKS energy unit is the Joule = kg * m^2 / s^2
