Example 7-5: Solar PowerIf solar illumination is characterized by a power density of1 kW/m2 on Earth’s surface, find (a) the total power radiatedby the sun, (b) the total power intercepted by Earth, and (c) theelectric field of the power density incident upon Earth’s surface,assuming that all the solar illumination is at a single frequency.The radius of Earth’s orbit around the sun, Rs, is approximately1.5 × 108 km, and Earth’s mean radius Re is 6,380 km
