photons_energy_ratio: Photon:energy ratio

Description

This function gives the photons:energy ratio between for one given waveband of a radiation spectrum.

Usage

3
photons_energy_ratio(w.length, s.irrad, w.band = NULL, unit.in = "energy",
  check.spectrum = TRUE, use.cached.mult = FALSE,
  use.hinges = getOption("photobiology.use.hinges", default = NULL))

Arguments

w.length

numeric array of wavelength (nm)

s.irrad

numeric array of spectral (energy) irradiances (W m-2 nm-1)

w.band

waveband

unit.in

character Allowed values "energy", and "photon", or its alias "quantum"

check.spectrum

logical Flag telling whether to sanity check input data, default is TRUE

use.cached.mult

logical Flag telling whether multiplier values should be cached between calls

use.hinges

logical Flag telling whether to use hinges to reduce interpolation errors

Value

A single numeric value giving the ratio moles-photons per Joule.
