Homework Help: Physics

Posted by J on Monday, March 31, 2008 at 7:10pm.

We can reasonaly model a 75 W incandescent lightbulb as a sphere 6 cm in diameter. Typically, only about 5% of the energy goes to visible light; the rest goes largely to nonvisible infrared radiation. (a) What is the visible light intensity (in W/m^2) at the surface of the bulb? (b) What are the amplitudes of the electric and magnetic fields at this surface, for a sinusoidal wave with this intensity?

ok..once again I am totally confused.
