    A typical home may require a total of 2.17E+3 kW*hr of energy per month. Suppose you would like to obtain this energy from sunlight, which has an average daylight intensity of 1.13E+3 W/m2. Assuming that sunlight is available 8.10 hr per day, 26 days per month (accounting for cloudy days), and that you have a way to store energy from your collector when the Sun isn't shining, determine the smallest collector size that will provide the needed energy, given a conversion efficiency of 24.5 %.

    Please solve and explain.
