Calculate the concentration (in molecules cm−3 ) of iodine atoms when an excimer laser pulse of 10 mJ at 248 nm is incident on a cubical cell of volume 1 cm3 containing 3 × 1015 molecules cm−3 of ethyl iodide:
C2 H5 I → C2 H5 + I
The absorption coefficient of ethyl iodide at 248 nm is = 63 L/mole/cm. (What assumption do you need to make about the quantum yield for this photodissociation?)
