the eye of the reptile!

The eyes of certain member of the reptile family pass a single visual signal to the brain when the visual receptors are struck by photons of wavelength 132.6 nm. If a total energy of 3×10143\times 10^{-14} J is required to trip the signal, what is the minimum number of photons that must strike the receptor?

Constants

  • Plank's constant, h=6.63×1034 Js.h = 6.63\times 10^{-34}\text{ J}\cdot\text{s}.
  • Speed of light, c=3×108 m/s.c = 3\times 10^{8}\text{ m/s}.
