(and here's the clever bit) For any observation of a rainbow, a FINITE number of photons from the rainbow will strike your eye. It stands to reason that if you have a finite number of photons but an infinite number of frenquencies, that each photon will have a DIFFERENT frequency, so all you have to do is COUNT THE PHOTONS and you'll get your answer!
I bet there are some nifty equations and expensive equipment you can use to determine the EXACT LUMINOSITY of the rainbow and then apply some nifty OPTICS EQUATIONS that I CAN'T REMEMBER and never really knew anyway and from that figure out HOW MUCH LIGHT ENTERED YOUR EYE! Note that you'll also have to measure exactly how long you watched it. Then apply PLANCK'S EQUATION or something similar to work out how many photons that equals and then you've got your answer!
ZING!

Now somebody write a research proposal!

I suggest you masturbate at home and not on this board.

Floridays said:Definitely a "HER!" Donations welcome. Are you sure you REALLY want to see the "before" results???? I've seen 13 year olds on the beach down here who can fill out a bikini top better than me!
