If you put 120 volts of electricity through a pickle, the pickle will smoke and start glowing an orange-yellow color. The light is emitted because the sodium ions in the pickle become excited; their return to the ground state results in light emission

(a) The wavelength of this emitted light is 589 nm. Calculate its frequency.

(b) What is the energy of 0.10 mole of these photons?

(c) Calculate the energy gap between the excited and ground states for the sodium ion.

(d) If you soaked the pickle for a long time in a different salt solution, such as strontium chloride, would you still observe 589 nm light emission? Why or why not?
