P = E/t (power, energy, time)

E= n (1 photon energy)

n: piece

E= n (1 photon energy)

How come you're not given the wavelength of the emitted photons?

EDIT: Ok, I assume it's because the energy of each photon emitted would be equivalent to something which is already given in the question.

Where is the bandgap taken into account?

1. The amount of energy emitted per sec.

2. The amount of energy per emitted photon.

Units aside, this information is given directly in the problem statement. The problem is to figure out how to combine the 2 numbers to get the number of emitted photons per second.

Again, how to combine

(energy) / (sec)

and

(energy) / (photon)

in order to get

(photons) / (sec)

p.s. some unit conversions are required here.

0.0009 Joules/second

and

(1.42 eV) * 1.602 x10^-19 = 2.27 x 10^-19 Joules - Is this correct? Is this the energy per photon?

Does (energy/photon)/(energy/second) not give photons/second.

Is that how the problem is solved?

Yes.Okay so I get:

0.0009 Joules/second

and

(1.42 eV) * 1.602 x10^-19 = 2.27 x 10^-19 Joules - Is this correct? Is this the energy per photon?

No, but you are close.Does (energy/photon)/(energy/second) not give photons/second.

You wrote:

[tex]

\frac{(\frac{\mbox{energy}}{\mbox{photon}})}{(\frac{\mbox{energy}}{\mbox{second}})}

[/tex]

How do the units work out in what you wrote?

The only alternative I can think of is the Joules per second divided by the Joules per photon. This gives 3.96 x 10^16 Photons per sec. Is this correct?

You have the right idea, but entered the numbers into your calculator incorrectly.

Oh yes, 3.96 x 10^15. Is this the correct final answer. Thanks again for all your help.

Yes.
