After a nuclear rearrangement a GAMMA ray can be emitted
This is a very high frequency electromagnetic wave whose energy if given the equation
E = hf
Where h is Planks constant
F is the frequency of the wave

The question is for gcse, so I think this is a bit too complex?
I did ocr for gcse but didn’t learn about planks constant :dontknow:

Planck's constant (6.63x10-34 Js) is a concept that (I think) you learn at A-level. (We learn it in Higher, so I'm just assuming that some of the ideas transfer between the two courses).

I meant the "Higher Physics C857 76" course I currently take under SQA; I'm from Scotland, but I'd assume that Planck's constant is a concept you would learn in A-level Physics (although it's just an assumption, since there tends to be some similarity in content between Scottish and English courses).

Just ignore the equation bit then
