1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Consider a one layer atmosphere for the planet Venus. 19% of incoming solar radiation is absorbed by the atmosphere. 99% of the outgoing radiation is absorbed by the atmosphere. The incoming radiation, E, as measured by satellite is 615 Wm-2.

1) Derive two equations, one for the top of the atmosphere and the other for the Venusian surface in terms of x, y and E. Solve for the surface and atmospheric temperatures.

2. Relevant equations

None we need to create the equations but i do not know where to start.

3. The attempt at a solution

Please help! i have no clue where to start
