 Title: Request : SUN to Earth Energy calculation Post by: barzivb on July 16, 2011, 06:21:42 pm Dear All.I would like a simulator that calculate the flow energy from sun the the earth, when has a mirror among the the earth and sun.We'll type the mirror area m^2and type the mirror distanse from earth KM^2so, we'll get the flow energy Mega Watt Hour.i add a sketch.ThanksErez Title: Re: Request : SUN to Earth Energy calculation Post by: Fu-Kwun Hwang on July 16, 2011, 08:33:59 pm You can find more information from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SunlightThe size of sun is much larger than the size of the earth. (The ratio in your picture is not correct!)It is about 120W/m2 if you need a rough estimate.

Title: Re: Request : SUN to Earth Energy calculation Post by: Fu-Kwun Hwang on July 16, 2011, 10:11:30 pm Please describe it in detail if you have more in depth information.We need to know full information in order to create simulation.

I agree with you this subject never been easy to me.
