1.Given the following data show that average temperature of the moon’s surface is about -4°C. (Note this is the average temp. the sunny side can be over 100°C and the dark side as low as 150°C)Distance to sun 1.5 x 1011 mRadius 2 x 10 6 mAlbedo 12%Power emitted by Sun 4 x1026 W2. The human body has a temperature of 37°C and a surface area of about 2m2. Estimate the energy radiated per day and compare the value...
