Suppose that the microwave radiation has a wavelength of 12.4 cm. How many photons are required to heat 255 mL of coffee from 25.0 C to 62.0 C? Assume that the coffee has the same density, 0.997 g/mL, and specific heat capacity, 4.184 J/(g/ K), as water over this temperature range.

I am not sure how to find the answer

    Energy/photon = hc/wavelength.
    Remember to change wavelength meters and use c in m/s.

    heat required = mass x density x specific heat x delta T. Everything is here to calculate heat required.

    Knowing heat/photon and the total energy required you can calculate the number of photons required.
