Calculate the energy produced by triboluminescence

  1. Jan 18, 2010 #1
    Hi there,

    To start off with, I'm not sure if this is the right section or not, so if it is the wrong section could a mod please move it for me? Sorry!

    I'm curious to see if there is a way one would calculate the energy produced by triboluminescence. Like for example the amount of energy given off when you crunch on a LifeSavers Wintergreen mint?

    If anybody could give me a link or something to help that would be great! This would be for a physics project but only as a little fun fact to throw in at the end.

    No one has a link or anything?
