One type of sunburn occurs on exposure to UV light of
wavelength in the vicinity of 325 nm. (d) These UV
photons can break chemical bonds in your skin to cause
sunburn—a form of radiation damage. If the 325-nm radiation
provides exactly the energy to break an average chemical
bond in the skin, estimate the average energy of these
bonds in kJ>mol.
