I have a physics problem that I am stuck on: Approximately 4 x 10^9 kg of matter is converted into energy each second in the sun. Find the power output of the sun. I know the answer is 3.6 x 10^26 W I just can't figure out how to get the correct equation and numbers. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
