    A 4 X 8-ft solar collector has water circulating through it at the rate of 1.0 gallon per minute while exposed to sunlight with intensity 300 Btu/ft^2-hr. Fifty percent of that sunlight is captured by the collector and heats the water flowing through it. What would be the temperature rise of the water as it leaves the collector? where T_0= T_i + delta T and T_i is the rate of gallon per minute.
