how much energy is contained in 1 mole of gamma rays...?
with a wavelength of 2.57 x 10^-5

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!
