Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Estime the average power output of the sun, given that about 1350 W/m^2 reaches the upper atosphere of the Earth. the distance from the Sun to the Earth is 1.5 x 10^11m

I have the formula E_o = [squ]2S/e_oc. This is what I have thus far...

E_o = [squ]2(1350W/m^2)/8.85x10^-12C^2/Nm^2)(.x10^8 m/s) = 312V/m.

I am lost on my calculations can someone help me solve for this,plz

Thanks!

Dx
