1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data (a) Compute the specific energy generation rate of the Sun as a whole. (b) Assume a human of weight 100 kg has a “luminosity” of 100 W. Compute the specific energy generation rate of a this human. 2. Relevant equations Need help with the equations part. 3. The attempt at a solution My first instinct was that the energy generation would just be the luminosity of the Sun, but this is a slightly more advanced astrophysics course in which I think they would be looking for something more. Does "specific energy generation rate" mean something more then just the rate it generates energy? Is there some equation I should have to solve these questions? Thanks for the help!
