How To Find The Solar Energy?
I Need Help With My Chemistry...The Question Is The Average Solar Energy Received By A Horizontal Surface In The Summer In Springfield Is 3.5 X 10^ J/M^2 Hour. If A Home Has A Solar Panel With Dimensions 10.0 M By 25.0M How Many Joules Of Energy Will This Panel Absorb Over 8 Points....Please Help And Explain The Answer Or How U Did It
You have J/(m^2 hr). To get to J (ie energy) you want to multiply by something with units m^2 and hr (area and time)
If we assume the panel is rectangular you have data to work out its area and you're given time.
3.5*10^a * 10*25 * 8
a being the unknown exponent which you didn't put in the question
What Are Some Current Places Where Solar Energy Thermal (Heat) Is Being Used?
Google Is Being A Crappy Helper.
Solar thermal can be used to generate electricity in large power plants, or can be used to capture heat for water and space heating. Here's a good site on solar thermal electricity, http://www.ecoworld.com/energy-fuels/sol... I'm using solar thermal in New England to heat my domestic water for showers and washing, as well as to heat my house. Here's a description of it, http://www.altestore.com/gallery/Amy-Bea... It can be used to heat the water for radiant floors, or heat the air in forced hot air systems.
Solar thermal is used all around the world. China is the largest user of solar water heating, with Japan, Germany, Israel all closer behind. It is now required by law in Hawaii for new construction to install slar water heating, since it saves so much power instead of using electricity to heat water.
