I have solved the second and the third part of the problem.

A). How many kilograms of water can be evaporated from a 1-m2 surface of water in a lake on a hot clear summer day, if it is assumed that the limiting factor of the Sun's heat of 4 j min-1 cm-1 for an 8-hour day? Assume that the air and water temperature remains constant at 40ºC. Solved!! 7.99x10-2 kg/m2

B). What volume of air is needed to hold this much water ...

Solution Summary

The thermodynamics for sun and heat sample solutions are determined.
