Unformatted text preview: 2. Repeat the previous question, but for a wavelength of 1 cm and a radiance of 2.103 x 10-10 W m-2 m-1 sr-1 . Answer (a), (b), and (c) in question 1. 3. Consider a cloud that, when view from a point on the surface, occupies the portion of the sky defined by /4 < < /2 and 0 < < /8 ( is the zenith angle, and is the azimuth angle). (a) What is the solid angle subtended by the cloud? (b) What percentage of the sky is covered by this cloud? 4. The S-band weather radar s wavelength is 10-cm. Assuming that the raindrops have approximately the same relative refractive index m as that used to produce the following figure (m=1.78), determine the range of raindrop radii that would fall in Rayleigh regime by using the exact Mie theory curve....
