Draw one diagram showing the plan view (footprint) of the building and nearby obstacles, and
others showing the profile (elevation) view and the relative heights of these obstacles.
b). Assume that your goal is to maximize radiation absorption in all seasons. Where would be the best place to put a solar collector and to what angle should the collector be adjusted for the solstices and equinox? Using the diagrams that you have drawn for (a), indicate how you would adjust your solar collector for obstruction due to the presence of those obstacles.
Question 2: The slope, aspect and albedo are three important variables upon which the radiation budget depends. Given the values for surfaces (at 34oN) in the Table below, calculate the rates of solar heating (SH) at solar noon on the equinox for the four surfaces using the following equations. Present your answers in a Table format and attach your calculations. Pay attention to your units.
