Sample problems for test # 4 1) If the ground behaves as a black-body, will the net irradiance between the ground and an overlying cooler cloud be greater if the cloud is a black-body or a gray-body? You can assume that no significant absorption (or scattering or anything else) occurs in between the ground and the cloud. Assume that the temperature of the ground and the cloud is the same in both cases. 0 1 ) ( 1 ) 1 )( 1 ( 1 ) ( 4 2 4 1 2 1 2 1 4 2 4 1 2 1 = = = T T a E a a a T T a a E n n σ σ So, E n will be greater for a black-body (a 2 = 1) than it will for a gray-body (a 2 < 1). 2) If the net irradiance between the 18 o C ground and an overlying cloud is 64 W/m 2 , what is the temperature of the cloud?

### 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.
