Given the spectral irradiance by the sun as measured at upper levels of the atmosphere, what is the solar radiance measured at the same place?
How much optical power could you collect with 1m^2 solar panel that is equally sensitive from 0.4um to 1.0um?

See attached file for full problem description including diagram.
