Use Stefan's law: P(net) = 5.67×10-8 W/K4 m2 *A*e*(T4 - To4) to solve the following questions.

(Radii of the Earth and the Sun are Re = 6.38×106 m, Rs = 7×108 m.)

(a) What is the net power radiated from our Earth into free space in Watt W?

I came up with an answer of 1.54*10^17...is that what you came up with? (just use the equation mentioned above and A=4*Pi*Re2, e=.8, T= 270, To=2)
