# A certain solar panel is capable of absorbing 750J of light energy every second and converting 150J of the energy into electrical energy. (a): How much energy is wasted in the form of heat by the solar panel every second. (b): What is the efficiency of this solar panel?

8

## Given :

• Light energy absorbed per second by solar panel = 750J
• Electrical energy produced per second by solar panel = 150J

## To find :

(a) Energy is wasted in the form of heat by the solar panel every second.

(b): Efficiency of this solar panel.

## Solution :

As we can see in question that there is a solar panel which absorb light energy and convert/produce electrical energy from it and some amount of absorbed light energy is wasted as heat

Therefore,

➝ Light energy absorbed per second = Electrical energy produced per second + Heat lost per second

➝ Heat lost per second = Light energy absorbed per second - Electrical energy produced per second

➝ Heat lost per second = 750J - 150J

➝ Heat lost per second = 600J
