HW 4. Solution 1. Jupiter For any planet, its solar constant F s is inversely proportional to the square of its distance to the sun, d , i.e., F s 1/ d 2 . The Jupiter-Sun distance is 5.2 times that of Earth-Sun, i.e., 7.8 × 10 8 km/1.5 × 10 8 km = 5.2. Thus the solar constant for Jupiter is F s = (1/5.2) 2 × 1370 W m -2 = 50.7 W m -2 The effective temperature of Jupiter is thus T E = [(1- A ) F s /(4 σ )] ¼ = [(1-0.73) × 50.7 W m -2 /(4 × 5.67 × 10 -8 J m -2 s -1 K -4 )] ¼ = 88 K The energy from solar radiation is σ (88 K) 4 = 3.4 W m -2 (another way to look at it: (1- A ) F s /4 = (1-0.73) × 50.7 W m -2 /4 = 3.4 W m -2 ) Since the observed effective temperature is 134 K, the internal heat source is thus σ (134 K) 4 - σ (88 K) 4 = 14.9 W m -2 , about 4.4 times that from solar radiation (another way to look at it: [ σ (134 K) 4 - σ (88 K) 4 ]/[ σ (88 K) 4 ] = (134/88) 4 – 1 = 4.4) The internal energy source is much larger than that from solar radiation. In comparison, solar radiation accounts for more than 99.99% of the energy supply to the Earth- atmosphere system.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
