Homework Help: physics

In a solar water heater, energy from the Sun is gathered by water that circulates through tubes in a rooftop collector. The solar radiation enters the collector through a transparent cover and warms the water in the tubes; this water is pumped into a holding tank. Assume that the efficiency of the overall system is 24.0% (that is, 76% of the incident solar energy is lost from the system). What collector area (in square meters) is necessary to raise the temperature of 330 L of water in the tank from 21C to 46C in 2.7 h when the intensity of incident sunlight is 540 W/m2? The specific heat of water is 4186 J/kgK. The density of water is 1.00 g/cm3.
