Problem 49.32 (RHK)
Under ideal conditions the normal human eye will record a visual sensation at 540 nm if incident photons are absorbed at a rate as low as. We have to find the power level to which it corresponds.

Energy of a photon of wavelength 540 nm is
As eye is able to record a visual sensation when 100 photons are absorbed per second, the power level of the eye is
