I am currently doing a biology honours project at university and have been stumped by a fairly basic physics hurdle. I need to know the equation to calculate the amount of light absorbed by water/unit depth. I have tried to find the equation all over but cannot find anything. Im sure i did this in A-Level physics but i really cant remember -_-

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
