What color photon would be emitted if it gave off a photon with 3.29E-19 J of energy? please helpppppp?

    You need an equation that relates energy to either wavelenght or frequency of the photon. You can use either

    E = h f or its equivalent E = h c/lambda

    where h is Planck's constant, f is frequency, c is the speed of light and lambda is the wavelength.

    So if you use E = hf, solve for f gives:

    f = E/h = 3.29 E-19J/6.6 E-27 J s

    Determine this frequency and look up the corresponding color.

    E = hc/lambda, so

    lambda = hc/E

    = 6.6E-34*3E8/3.3E-19

    = around 6 x 10^(-7) m = 600 nm,

    which is orange light.
