Enter the frequency of the transition (hz) into the Electron Transition Energy Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Electron Transition Energy. 

Electron Transition Energy Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Electron Transition Energy.

ET = h * v

Variables:

  • ET is the Electron Transition Energy (J)
  • v is the frequency of the transition (hz) 
  • h is Planck’s Constant = 6.626*10^-34 (J-s)

How to Calculate Electron Transition Energy?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Electron Transition Energy.


  1. First, determine the frequency of the transition (hz). 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = ET = h * v.
  3. Finally, calculate the Electron Transition Energy.
  4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

frequency of the transition (hz) = 300

ET = h * v = ?
