Number of photons of a particular wavelength per time interval (spectral photon flux, number basis, qp,λ, or spectral photon flux, amount basis, qn,p,λ) absorbed by a system per volume, V. On number basis, SI unit is s-1 m-4, and the common unit is s-1 cm-3 nm-1. On amount basis, SI unit is mol s-1 m-4, and a common unit is einstein s-1 cm-3 nm-1.**Notes: **

- Mathematical expression: \(\frac{q_{p,\lambda }^{0}[1 - 10^{-A(\lambda )} ]}{V}\) on number basis, \(\frac{q_{n,p,\lambda }^{0}[ 1 - 10^{-A(\lambda )} ]}{V}\) on amount basis, where \(A(λ)\) is the @A00028@ at @W06659@ \(λ\) and superscript \(0\) (zero) indicates incident photons.
- Absorbed spectral photon flux density (number basis or amount basis) should be used in the denominator when calculating a differential @Q04991@ and using in the numerator the rate of change of the number concentration, \(\frac{dC}{dt}\) or the rate of change of the @A00295@, \(\frac{dc}{dt}\), respectively.
