It is believed that in the Archeaneon (2.5-4 billion years ago) the sun’s radiative output was 30% less than it is today.

(i) What would the temperature of the sun have been at that time?

(ii) At what wavelength would the peak emission from the sun have been?

(iii) Ignoring the effects of the atmosphere, what would the temperature of the Earth have been at this time (i.e. the effective radiative temperature)? Assume that the Earth’s albedo was 0.3, the same as today.

2. Relevant equations

Boltzman equation

wiens law

3. The attempt at a solution

a)T= 4th root[5143824/(5.67*10^-8)]

t=5488.14K

b)detlamax=2897/5488.147

=0.527

I DONT GET PART 3 PLEASE HELP MEE!! MY ASSIGNMENT IS DUE TOMARROW! PLEASE
