`E = \frac{h c}{\lambda}`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Photon Energy from Wavelength** calculator compute the energy of a photon based on Planck's constant (h), the speed of light (c) and the wavelength of the photon ( λ).

**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**λ**) Wavelength of Photon

**Energy of Photon (E):** The calculator returns the energy in Joules. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The energy of a photon depends only on its wavelength. The formula for the energy of a photon is:

where:

- E = energy of the photon
- h = Planck's constant
- c = speed of light ( 2.998 × 10
^{8}m/s) - λ= wavelength of the light

Note the following relations are also true:

where:

- E = energy of light
- f = frequency
- h = Planck's Constant
- c = Speed of Light in a vacuum

- Kinetic Energy (change of velocity) : K = ½⋅m⋅(V
_{1}-V_{2})² - Kinetic Energy: KE= ½⋅m⋅v²
- Relativistic Kinetic Energy
- Quantum Energy
- Potential Energy
- Potential Energy of Gravity (two bodies)
- Nuclear Binding Energy: E = m⋅c
^{2} - Energy of a Particle in a Box
- Planck's Equation: E = h⋅f
- Molecular Kinetic Energy
- Electrostatic Potential Energy
- Photon Energy from Wavelength
