Calculate the power incident on a flat tin roof 8.00m x 20.0m. The radiation is incident normal to the roof and Sun delivers the average power/unit area of 1.00x10^3W/m^2 to Earth's surface.

Area of flat roof = 8.00 x 20.0

=160.0 sq m

Thus power incident on the roof 8.0 x 20.0=`1.0xx10^3 xx 160.0 W`

`` `=1.60 xx 10^5 W`
