Short Answer

1.0x 1010 photons pass through an experimental apparatus. How many of them land in a 0.10-mm-wide strip where the probability density is 20 m-1?

Thus, the number of photons that will land in 0.10 mm wide strip is

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Given information

1.0x 1010 photons pass through an experimental apparatus.

Step 2: Explanation

The number of photons that will land in 0.10 mm wide strip is:

Where,

p(x) is probability density

is the width of strip

is the total number of photons

Substituting the values:
