Extrasolar Planet Irradiance

Main Question or Discussion Point

I was hoping someone would give some advice on the development of this entry on calculating the heat received by newly discovered planets. It is pretty much all there, I guess it just need some clean up for forum quality standards:

It is easy to calculate the average heat (the Irradiance, or flux, or insolation) received by discovered new planets. The actual annual irradiance can vary greatly depending on the eccentricity of the planet's orbit. But the extremes can also be calculated the same way using the Perihelion and Aphelion distances.
