Im trying to get to grips with factors? and want to check my methodology, so:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It all about solar panels..I've calculated how much power the cell will produced @ AM1.5 this is73 mW cm-2.

Now my question is, i have to calculate the short fall by a factor of 1000 due when its used indoors for example. So am i right saying:

73 mW cm^-2

/ 1000

= 7.3^-3 mW cm^-2

- 73 mW cm^-2

= 65.7 mW cm^-2 (is this the shortfall answer)

Any help would be appreciated. and if you have any subsequent Q's, il try and answer them
