Dear Kashish
 
\lambda = 5600 A
Energy of one photon is E = h\nu = h*c/\lambda
E = 6.63* 10^-34 * 3* 10^8/(5600* 10^-10) = 3.616 * 10^-19 J
A 100 watt bulb requires 100 joule of energy per second.
 
Energy radiated by the bulb as visible light per second = 5% of 100
= 5 Joule
 
Number of photons emitted per second=
Energy radiated per sec/ energy of one ohoton
= 5/(3.616 * 10^ -19) 
= 1.38 * 10^19
