T pm is very difficult to measure. We will develop a form of Q u in terms of measureable terms and then we can use Q u to estimate the collector efficiency, η c. We’ll need to also have a way of determining I T , the total radiation incident on the solar collector surface. T c u c I A Q = η Eqn. 1 Eqn. 3
