    1 mole of gamma rays contains 6.02 x 10^23 particles. That's Avogadro's constant.

    The formula for energy E = nhf.

    n = number of particles

    h = Planck's constant

    f = frequency

    Note that since c = f (lambda) where c denotes the speed of light and lambda denotes wavelength, the formula can be rewritten as E = nhc/(lambda)

    Thus energy = 6.02 x 10^23 x 6.63 x 10^-34 x 3.0 x 10^8 x 2.57 x 10^-5

    which gives us E = 3.0773 x 10^-6 (5 sf)

    Hope I was of help!
