    In the circuitous haze of my mind
    I'm looking for an equation that describes the amount (rate) and frequency of light emitted when an electron is accelerated by a given amount for a certain time period. I tried searching for such a thing, but the closest equations I found were beyond me and did not seem to describe precisely what I was looking for. I need the input of the equation to either contain or equal a value in m/s^2 and the output to contain # of photons emitted per second and the wavelength of those photons. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Of all the wonders in the universe, none is likely more fascinating and complicated than human nature.
