According to the equation #E = n * h * nu# (energy = number of photons times Planck's constant times the frequency), if you divide the energy by Planck's constant, you should get photons per second.

#E/h = n * nu# #-># the term #n * nu# should have units of photons/second.

Use this formula,
#nu=E/h#
Where #nu#=frequency of E.R. or no. of photons emitted per second.
#E#=Energy, and #h#=plank's constant
