I recently had an exam question that asked for the temperature at the surface of the sun. The question is
The equation I believe you have to use is
The Q/t is the radiant power produced by the sun.
On our equation sheet, we are given the lowercase sigma constant = 5.67 x 10^-8
We can use the mass of the sun to solve
The only part I am unable to find that we are missing is the emissivity.
After that, you can solve for T. But I can't find the emissivity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, and sorry for any horrible formatting, as I composed this on my phone.
