- On a certain day, light is shining perpendicularly on the surface of the earth with an intensity of 713 W/m². Assuming that all the photons in the light have the same wavelength (in vacuum) of 733 nm, determine the number of photons per second per square meter that reach the earth. Enter your answer in scientific notation. If your answer is 5.14 x 104, input 5.14e+4 as your answer.

What would happen to the Sun's wavelength of peak emission? c. Do you think it would still be possible to have life on Earth? Explain /A The energy radiated by a black body at 2300K is found to have the maximum at a wavelength 1260 nm, its emissive power being 8000W/m2. When the body is cooled to a temperature T K, the emissive power is found to decrease to 500W/m2.

A comet has just passed the Earth and its peak emission is observed at 15000 nm. Determine in which region of the electromagnetic spectrum (e.g. X-ray, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, ...) the peak emission wavelength resides. What is the temperature of the comet? B. Within the Solar System, a convenient unit of measurement is the Earth-Sun distance, called an astronomical unit (AU). For bigger distances, we use the light year (LY), the distance that light travels in one year. We can expand our lingo to include other measures of distance, for example, light days, light minutes, and light hours. Starting with the values you can look up in the Appendices for the speed of light and the astronomical unit, calculate how many “light minutes” there are in 1 AU. C. What is the observable universe? How big is it?*arrow_forward* - An atom has its electron in the energy level at - 1.2 eV. It absorbs a photon, which promotes the election to the -0.4 eV level.

(Round your answer to at least one decimal place.)*arrow_forward* - As we have been slowly discovering more and more about the atoms we have encountered several different models of the atoms. All of these models have issues. One of the most common issues is the scale of the subatomic particles. Like the image below The proton in this model is too large. Given the following measurement, how many protons would need to set side-by-side to to equal the width of a hydrogen atom? The radius of a proton is 0.5636 fm (Femtometer).

These are just random numbers. Can you help me understand the formula for part "c" so that I can implement the answers from part "b" and figure out the temperatures of the sun, light bulb, and the Earth?
