minimum frequency and maximum wavelength?

It takes about 0.1 eV to break a “hydrogen bond” in a protein molecule. what is the minimum frequency and maximum wavelength of a photon that can do this?

Answer 1

Using Max Planck’s formula:
E = hf, where h is Planck’s constant.
Don’t forget to convert the energy from eV to Joule by multiplying it by 1.6 x (10^-19).
The wavelength can be found using this formula:
λ f = c, where c is the speed of light.
