Energy per Photon

Postby 405289292 » Mon Oct 14, 2019 8:05 pm

Can anyone help me solve this problem? -"In 1.0 s, a 60 W bulb emits 11 J of energy in the form of infrared radiation (heat) of wavelength 1850 nm. What is the energy per photon of light emitted?
 How many photons of infrared radiation does the lamp generate in 1.0 s?"

Use E=h(c/wavelength) to find the energy of one photon of wavelength 1850, and then divide 11J by the answer of the previous section in order to find the total amount of photons.

Another equation that might be relevant here is E = W(j/s)*t (s)

^^ not sure if that would be too helpful since its asking for the amount of photons given off, not amount of energy in joules

If the question is asking this but in a 2 second interval would you do the same but times it by 2?
