Hi, if someone could help me figure this out I'd really appreciate it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Estimate the average power output of the Sun, given that about 1350 W/m^2 reaches the upper atmosphere of the Earth.

I know the answer is 3.8 X 10^26 W but I don't know how to get there. I've tried different equations and putting random numbers together but it's been waaayyy off. Can someone help point me in the right direction?? THANKS!!
