L= (luminosity) F4 π R 2 or (4 π R2) σ Part 1: Radiation from the Sun 1. E* = (1 - ) α σ T 4 = (5.67 x 10 -8 ) / (5780) -4 = (5.67 x 10 -8 ) / (1.12 x 10 15 ) E*(I) = 6.33 x 10 7 W/m 2 The incident radiant flux of the sun (irradiance) = 6.33 x 10 7 W/m 2 . 2. R sun = 7 x 10 8 m (4 π R 2 ) σ T 4 = 4 ( π 7 x 10 8 ) 2 x (6.33 x 10 7 ) = (6.61 x 10 18 ) x (6.33 x 10 7 ) = 4.18 x 10 26 W The total power emitted from the sun is 4.18 x 10
