Solar energy in the neutrinos

  1. Oct 6, 2011 #1

    what % of solar energy is converted to solar neutrinos, assuming energy released in all forms per unit time , say 1 second as 100%?

    Energy loss due to neutrinos is important in the cooling of neutron stars and white dwarfs, in what is known as the Urca process. If you're seriously interested you should ask this question in the Astrophysics forum.
