Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Brittany on Wednesday, August 11, 2010 at 11:44am.

We can reasonably model a 75 W incandescent light bulb as a sphere 6.0 cm in diameter. Typically, only about 5% of the energy goes to visible light; the rest goes largely to non-visible light 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?

I am really lost on how to solve this problem. The only thing I know for sure that I need to do is: (75)(.05)=3.75 W for the visible light. Can you please show your work?
