Hi,

Here is a link to the rather special spreadsheet that N8GS has created to help size solar systems!

laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif You needed to mention that this is referring to batteries. When I read your post, as a totally non-technical person, I thought you were actually referring to THE solar system (outer space and all). You really have to spell out things for some of us. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

I often have the same initial response when I get spam with a subject line like "Build Your Own Solar System Cheap!"

My first thought: won't God object to the competition?

Hi Tx,

Well plug in the data about the solar system and--this will tell you how many batteries you need to run it. Radiant out put of the sun is approximately 3.846 10^26 watts.

That is

384,600,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 watts.

*grin*

I shoulda known that being a post from PianoTuna that it would relate to batteries. Like, TexasRVers, I thought it was relating to our galaxy. smile.gif

GandJ,

Not to be too picky, but there is a BIG difference between our solar system and our galaxy (the Milky Way, I believe).
