Only a fraction of the electrical energy supplied to a tungsten light bulb is converted to visible light. The rest of the energy shows up as infrared radiation (that is, heat). A 75-W light bulb converts 15.0% of the energy supplied to it into visible light. Assuming a wavelength of 550 nm, how many photons are emitted by the light bulb per second? (1W = 1 J s^-1.)
