Sample problems for test # 3 1) What is the peak monochromatic radiance from an object (black-body) in this room at 25 o C? 2) The ocean has an albedo (reflectivity) of about 0.1. What is the irradiance of the ocean if its temperature is 15 o C? 3) If the sun were twice as large as it is now, but still emitted the same amount of radiant energy, would the irradiance at the top of the Earth’s atmosphere be smaller, larger, or the same as it is now? 4) If the intensity of a laser decreases by 30% after traveling 1 km in the atmosphere, how much will the intensity have decreased after traveling first 100 m? 5) All else being equal, will the half width of an absorption line for oxygen be greater or smaller than that for hydrogen? 6) What does the relative surface area of plages (6200 K) to sunspots (4500 K) have to be such that the total solar irradiance is the same as if the entire photosphere were at 6000 K? 7) You decide that you want to determine the solar monochromatic radiance at the top of the atmosphere at 500 and 600 nm by measuring the irradiance at the ground at two times

    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.
