Solution: The human retina has three types of receptor cones, each sensitive to a different range of wavelengths of visible light, as shown in this figure (the colors are merely to differentiate the three curve

Problem
The human retina has three types of receptor cones, each sensitive to a different range of wavelengths of visible light, as shown in this figure (the colors are merely to differentiate the three curves from one another; they do not indicate the actual colors represented by each curve):

A graph shows wavelength (nanometers) on the X-axis, and has three curves.  One is a narrow hump that peaks at 450 nanometers, one is a broad peak at 540 nanometers, and the third is a very broad peak at 590 nanometers.

Estimate the energies of photons with wavelengths at the maximum for each type of cone.
