    Radiation problem

    This is more then likely wrong but for part B i said 70% of power had to be transferred back to maintain equilibrium so therefore 239.4 W/m^2 And for Part C I used T^4 = P/(e*"boltz constant"*Area) Which then became T = 4Sqrt(239.4 W/m^2/(0.602*5.67*10^-8*4*pi*6378000m^2)

    General physics question (position,velocity and acceleration)

    Hey I'm quite new to physics and am still getting my head around some equations and the correct ways to use them... This question is just throwing me off because of the angle given and I don't know any formula's that include an angle. Question is.. Steve and Mark are playing a game of...
