Question: An aromatic compound, RX, fluoresces at 470 nm (quantum yield = 0.1) after excitation at 340 nm. The molar absorptivity of RX at 340 nm is 1100. How much energy has been lost by non-radiative means or remains with the compound after it fluoresces at 470 nm? How many joules of energy per mole of 340 nm photons is retained by a 10 mL volume of 0.01 M RX?
