How Much Solar Energy Will Be Received by 1 M2 Area in One Hour If the Solar Constant Be 1.4 Kw/M2? - Science

How much solar energy will be received by 1 m2 area in one hour if the solar constant be 1.4 kW/m2?

Solution

Solar constant = 1.4 kW/m2 = 1.4 kJ/s/m2
1 hour in seconds = 60 xx 60 = 3600
Energy received in one hour =

3600 x 1.4Kj/m= 5040Kj/m2

Concept: Solar Energy
