A 9.00 mL ampule of a 0.100 M solution of naphthalene in hexane is excited with a flash of light. The naphthalene emits 15.7 J of energy at an average wavelength of 349 nm.What percentage of the naphthalene molecules emitted a photon?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

this is for 8.00mL and 11.1J

use for this calculation for your question

first use the formula E = hc/λ 
6.626*10^-34 x (times) 2.998*10^8/ 349*10^-9 nm = 5.692*10^-19J 

# of the photons emitted 
11.1 /5.692*10^-19 = 1.95*10^19 Photons 

moles of nepthalene 
8/1000 x 0.110 =8.8*10^-4 mol 

# of its molecules 
8.8*10^-4x 6.022*10^23(avogadro #) =5.30*10^20 molecules 

1.95*10^19/5.30*10^20 x100 
=3.7% answer 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
