The light energy that falls on a square meter of ground over the course of a typical sunny day is about 20 MJ. The average rate of electric energy cotpumsnion in one house is 1.0 kW.a) On average, how much energy does one house use during each 24 hour day?b) If light energy to electric energy conversion using solar cells is 5% efficient, how many square miles of land must be covered with solar cells to supply the electrical energy for 250,000 houses? Assume there is no cloud cover.
