Convert the moles to photons?

That would be a fine starting point. :)

Then what would I do after that?

Well, that action would give us the total number of photons we are looking at. In a sense the energy should then be the energy of one individual photon times how many we have.

Could you explain how to calculate that please? I am just having some trouble understanding this topic..

Well, we are given a frequency. We need to find the energy. Do you recall seeing these two formulas: E = h v h is planck constant, v is frequency <-- we need frequency here... c = w v c is speed of light, w is wavelength, v is frequency <-- this is to convert frequency and wavelength

Yes

So, the procedure is like this: (a) Convert the wavelength 2.6 x 10^15 to frequency (c = w v) (b) Use frequency and Planck constant to find Energy (E = h v = h c/w )

Ok, thank you!

Glad to help! and once you find energy there, don't forget to multiply by the number of photons to get the overall energy.

Ok, I wont forget

The question already provides the frequency. So you can straight find the energy of one photon with the formula AD provided.

oh wow, i entirely just imagined this question saying we had wavelength. :x thanks for pointing it out @iPwnBunnies

so its actually easier than that, skip (a) because we have frequency E = h v sorry for the mix up!
