A radio station operates at a frequency of 103.7 MHz with a power output of 200 KW. Determine the rate of emission of quanta from the station.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Well I know the frequency and the power.

I know the number of photons a second = (Power * Area) / ( Plancks Constant * Speed of Light ) / Lambda

I think this would be the right equation to use but I am lacking the area. I believe you can find the wavelength by using the speed (C) and the frequency. Just unsure about the rest
