The purpose of this paper is to introduce a new physical consant called the Angus' constant which is represented by the Greek letter lambda in upper case (/\). The Angus' constant or /\ is equal to 1.98 x 10^25 Jm. The author explains how he derived the new physical constant. Then, the author explains the importance of this new physical constant to nuclear science. The new physical constant helps to affirm the dual nature of the photon. Furthermore, this paper shows that there are two ways to represent mathematically the photon, namely in the form of the "Einstein's photon equation" and the "Angus' photon equation". This paper reveals that the new physical constant can be used to give an alternative explanation to Einstein's Law of photoelectric effect. Finally, the author reveals the applications of this new physical constant to nuclear energy production.
