The Essential Sun
The Essential Sun
  • The Sun is by far the most important source of energy for life on earth
  • It is 109 times the size of the earth
  • it has 330,000 times the mass of earth
  • Accounts for 99.86% of the total mass of the solar system
  • It formed approximately 4.6 Billions years ago
  • Has been regarded by some cultures as a deity
  • The rotation of earth and its orbit around the sun are the basis of solar calendars, one of which is the predominant calendar in use today
The Sun Activity
The Sun Activity
  • The Solar Constant: The amount of power that the sun deposits per unit area that is directly exposed to sun light
  • The value of the solar constant is equal to approximately 1,368 watt/sqm at a distance of one astronomical unit (The distance from Earth To the Sun)
  • Sunlight at the surface of earth is attenuated by Earth's Atmosphere, so less power arrives at earth's surface that leaves the Sun
  • Sunlight at the top of Earth's atmosphere is composed of 50% Infrared light, 40% visible Light, and 10 % Ultraviolet Light
  • The atmosphere filters out over 70% of solar Ultraviolet light, specifically at the shorter wavelengths
  • Ultraviolet light from the Sun has antiseptic properties and can be used to sanitize tools and water. It also causes sun burn as well as sun tanning and Vitamin D production
  • Ultraviolet (UV) light is strongly attenuated by earth ozone's layer
