ABE 4034 Homework Problems – 4 Due Date –Thurs 2/5/09 1. Suppose that we measure the emitted exitance from a small hole in a furnace to be 22.8 W/cm 2 , using an optical pyrometer of some sort. Compute the internal temperature of the furnace. 2. When the Sun’s spectrum is photographed, using rockets to range above the Earth’s atmosphere, it is found to have a peak in its spectral exitance at roughly 465 nm. Compute the Sun’s surface temperature, assuming it to be a blackbody. 3. Plot the reflected, emitted, and total spectral power density (Wm

Assume that the sun is a blackbody with a temperature of 6000K, and that the sun’s power density is reduced by a factor of 66790 from the sun to the earth. The earth is an opaque, gray body with a temperature of 300K. Neglect effects of the atmosphere. For all the three cases, find the wavelength at which the emitted and the reflected power densities are the same....

### 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.
