comment How does the Fraunhofer irradiance distribution look for a double slit aperture of different lengths?
It may be worth a few words to define your notation. Is "d" the spacing and "b" the width? or is "b" something else? (finite slit height possibly). As stated the question is a bit unclear.

comment daylight length variation from year to year
Nice comprehensive answer. I would guess the discrepancy between OP and Wolfram Alpha have to do with exactly how the daylight hours are calculated (center vs top of sun visible, atmospheric refraction accounted for, etc).

comment Which derivation of drift velocity is correct?
You have presented three different questions. I would recommend posting them as such.

@RonMaimon this seems like an answer, why post in the comments?
