At the upper surface of the earth's atmosphere, the time-averaged magnitude of the Poynting vector is referred to as the solar constant and is given by </S/>=1.35103W⋅m−2 .

(a) If you assume that the sun's electromagnetic radiation is a plane sinusoidal wave, what is the magnitude of the electric field in V/m?

(b)What is the magnitude of the magnetic field in T?

(c) What is the time-averaged power (in Watt) radiated by the sun? The mean sun-earth distance is res=1.501011m
