Assuming that radiation with a wavelength = 15.0 cm is used, that all the energy is converted to heat, and that 4.184 J is needed to raise the temperature of 1.00 g of water by 1.00 degree celcius, how many photons are necessary to raise the temperature of a 350 mL cup of water from 25 degree C to 95 degree C?

  • science -

    (photon energy)(number of photons) = (4.184 J/deg*g)*350g*70C
    (h c/L)*N = 1.025*10^5 J
    Solve for N.
    L is the wavelength in meters
    c = 3*10^8 m/s
    h = Planck's constant
