physics

At a certain location, the solar power per unit area reaching the Earth's surface is 180 W/m2 averaged over a 24-hour day. Suppose you live in a solar powered house whose average power requirement is 3.2 kW.

At what rate must solar energy reach your solar panels if your solar panels have a typical coversion efficiency of 14 %. (In other words, what power must your solar panels receive?) Answer in both kiloWatts and Watts.

    1) Every second the Sun outputs 3.90* 10^26 Joules of energy. Power is energy output per unit time and is given in units of Watts (W) where 1 W = 1 Joule per second. The Sun's power output is therefore 3.90*10^26 Watts. This is
