Hi all!

Problem.
I have a light source (xenon-arc lamp) and wish to calculate the no. of photons emitted. It seems that I have to use chemical actionmetry (Potassium Ferrioxalate as Chemical Actinometer)? I need to know the no of photons emitted at all wavelengths given out by the lamp at a particular distance. Any ideas?

Hope you can help ;)

It is not possible to cover all wavelengths. You will have figure out what wavelengths you are really interested in and find an actinometer with a similar range or maybe slightly larger.
