See the answer below.

Work Step by Step

$c=\lambda\times\nu$ $\nu=2.998\times10^8\ m/s\div 278\times10^{-9}\ m=10.78\times10^{14}\ 1/s$ Per photon: $E=h\times\nu$ $E=6.626\times10^{-34}\ J.s\times 10.78\times10^{14}\ 1/s=7.15\times10^{-19}\ J$ Per mole: $E=4.85\times10^{-19}\ J\times6.022\times10^{23}\ 1/mol=430.3\ kJ/mol$ This spectrum is in the ultraviolet range. White color, since it reflects all colors in the visible range.
