This is due on Thursday 4/19/12
Been working at it for hours but can't figure it out. I am having most trouble figuring out how to incorporate PW.

(The equations provided below are wolfram compatible)

So far I know that Ta(temp of the atmosphere) is [(S(1-A))/(4(2-epsilon) sigma )]^(1/4)

Tg(temp of the ground) is [(S(1-A))/(2(2-epsilon) sigma )]^(1/4)

S=energy from the sun
A= albedo
epsilon= emissivity
sigma= 5.67x10^-8 W/m/k

The answer for T is in kelvin

Thanks in advance!
