Number of Photos, Wavelength, Maximum Energy and Velocity

1. A candle flame can be seen at night at a distance of 2 km by the unaided eye. If it emits visible light at the rate of 0.02 J/s, what is the number of photons that enter the eye per second?

2. What is the wavelength of a beam of ultraviolet light if its photon energy is 10 eV? If the beam produces photoelectrons from iron, which has a work function of 4.72 eV, what is the maximum energy and the maximum velocity of the electrons?
