Luminosity problem

  1. Feb 16, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A big drunken alumni tailgate game has an area of 11 ft2. Engineering alumni have constructed a Random Beanbag Machine that uniformly drops beanbags on the surface so that in each second 660 beanbags drop randomly all over the surface. The beanbag luminosity of this machine is

    (Value)(Units)

    2. Relevant equations
    Luminosity equation? Energy Conservation?

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I thought it would be just 660/11= 60 b/ft2, but i'm not sure,
