A competing technology uses a photovoltaic cell to charge a battery which can then be used to power a LED light. To compare these technologies, we make some reasonable assumptions. We assume the solar cell is 10 cm on a side, and that it has an efficiency of 15%. We assume the battery is a LaNi5 nickel metal hydride rechargeable battery with a mass of 50 grams, and we assume that the battery has an actual specific charge of 50% of its theoretical specific charge. We also assume that the battery produces an average voltage of 1.1 V.

d. How much power (in watts) will be generated by our solar cell if we place it in 1000 W/m2 direct incident sunlight? A: 1.5

How much energy can the solar cell produce during a day that receives the equivalent light of 4 hours of 1000 W/m2 direct incident sunlight, in kJ? A: 21.6

How much energy can the battery store, in kJ?
