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^2
and type the mirror distanse from earth KM^2

so, we'll get the flow energy Mega Watt Hour.

i add a sketch.

Thanks

Erez

You can find more information from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunlight

The 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.

It's not so simple as you describe it....

Please describe it in detail if you have more in depth information.

We need to know full information in order to create simulation.

HO, no, that's all

The sketch in the 1st contain all details.
Your simulation is great, really amazing:)

Thanks

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