Neutrino Emission

  1. May 4, 2005 #1
    Does anyone have a website which explains how to calculate the solar neutrino emission per second using the energies given in the p-p chain?

    The pp chain produces 26.7 MeV per cycle and their are two neutrinos emitted per cycle, so it should just be:

    [tex]\frac{2L_{tot}}{26.7\ MeV}[/tex]
