Homework Help: Photoelectric Effect.

  1. May 10, 2008 #1
    How many photons per second are emitted by a monochromatic light bulb (650nm) that emits 25 W of power?

    W=hfo

    hf=Ek + W

    P=W/t


    is there a way we can find power? how do I solve this question?

    Hint: What's the energy of a single 650nm photon? (This is not a photoelectric effect problem.)
