Problem 61

BIOLOGICAL APPLICATION A source radiates light of wavelength uniformly in all directions. An eye that has been adapted to the dark has a pupil and can detect the light if at least 20 photons per second enter the pupil. How far from the source can the light be detected under these rather extreme conditions?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

NEWTON’S FIRST LAW ● the most profound change in understanding the universe up to his time ● developed in the 1660s when the plague was sweeping thru Europe - again ● not published for almost 20 years ● perhaps a true law of nature ● objects at rest stay at rest ● objects in motion stay in motion, unless acted on by an outside force ● the first was common sense ● the 2nd was revolutionary ● the natural state of anything… what it will do if you leave it alone… is uniform motion ○ constant speed in a straight line ● moving uniformly feels like being at rest ● you can’t feel motion, only changes in motion ● there is no such thing as centrifugal force = term comes from misunderstanding the first law
