At what rate, in terms of solar masses, would material have to be fed into the accretion disk around a black hole to provide the power radiated by a large active galaxy, typically 1038 Watts, if 10 percent of this mass-energy is radiated away in the form of electromagnetic energy before the rest is captured?
