```							Energy flux of sunlight reaching the surface of earth, Φ = 1.388 × 103 W/m2Hence, power of sunlight per square metre, P = 1.388 × 103 WSpeed of light, c = 3 × 108 m/sPlanck’s constant, h = 6.626 × 10−34 JsAverage wavelength of photons present in sunlight, λ = 550 nm = 550 x 10-9 mNumber of photons per square metre incident on earth per second = n Hence, the equation for power can be written as: P= nE∴ n = P/E = Pλ / hc = 1.388 x 103 x 550 x 10-9 / 6.626 x 10-34 x 3 x 108 = 3.84 x 1021 photons/m2/sTherefore, every second, 3.84 x 1021 photons are incident per square metre on earth.
