Answer:

**Answer**

use the equation

E=hc/λ

where

E = energy need to calculate

h = planks constant = 6.626 x 10^{-34} Js

c= speed of the light = 3.0 x 10^{8} m/s

λ = wavelength = 445 nm convert in to meters = 445 x 10^{-9} m

put all these values in the above equation

E = (6.626 x 10^{-34} Js) (3.0 x 10^{8} m/s) / 445 x 10^{-9} m

E = 4.46 x 10^{-19} J or

or

E = 4.46 x 10^{-16} kJ
