Warm objects emit electromagnetic radiation in the infra-red region. Heat lamps employ this principle to generate infra-red radiation. Water absorbs infra-red radiation with wavelengths near 2.80um. Suppose this radiation is absorbed by the water and converted to heat. A 1.00 L sample of water absorbs infra-red radiation, and its temperature increases from 20C to 30C. How many photons of this radiation are used to heat the water?
