Unformatted text preview: The radius of the sun is 6.96x10 8 m, and the average earth-sun distance is 1.5x10 11 m. 2. (10 pts) How much less radiation would the earth emit, and how much longer would the peak wavelength of the emitted radiation be, if the average temperature on earth were the radiative equilibrium temperature (~255 K) instead of the observed (288 K) temperature?...
