Why is it important that the surface of the solar panel has a large area?

so it can get more sun

How many kilowatts can one solar panel create in one month?

The same as it can generate in a day, or in a year, or in a second. Kilowatt is a unit of power, not a unit of energy.

What is a good reason to buy solar panals?

Well, how about saving the planet? Actually, solar panels are initially expensive, but they are becoming more and more effective in electricity production for the size of the panel. You can generate enough free electricity for your own use, and sometimes sell back to the national grid any excess electricity you produce. Most installations are moveable to a new location should you move house or business address. You can get tax rebates on the cost of the installation. A battery will store the electicity for your use at a later time.

What is your prediction for the number of background radiation counts that your body would receive a day?

The answer depends on where on earth you were. Near the tropics you will receive much more solar radiation (light) that if you were near the poles. Even if you think of ionising radiation the answer will depend on your location. According to the local council, more than 1% of houses in Cornwall (South West England), are subject to radon-based radiation levels of at least 200 Becquerels per cubic metre. This is primarily from granite in the bedrock - underneath the houses. This level is 10 times the average for the country.

Gave you a example of radiation in real life?

The sun gives off radiation. An x-ray machine gives off radiation.

Do solar panels produce radiation which then harms humans?

A solar panel collects energy from sunlight, just like windmills convert wind energy. The mechanics inside the solar panel and inside the building let humans use solar energy. There is no more harm to humans from solar energy than there is from using energy produced from the wind.

Does a solar panel produce more electricity then it takes to make the panel?

Probably because a solar panel can produce electricity for many years.

How do solar panel produce electricity?

The solar panels produce electricity by the sunlight.

What it distorts stellar radiation?

it distorts the solar panel..

How is solar energy transferred?

Solar energy is radiation that comes from the sun. It can generate electricity and produce heat. They convert solar radiation into electricity.

When a solar panel is mounted with solar cells it what will it produce?

d.c. wattage

What if a solar panel is covered with snow?

if a solar panel is covered with snow then it is not getting any light so it will not produce energy

How much electricity does a 6 inch square solar panel produce?

That depends on the panel.

How many kilowatts will a solar panel produce?

OVER 9000

What is output voltage of 12v 5watt solar panel?

The output voltage of 12V 5W solar panel is 12V. The current is 0,41667A. These values are normaly calculated with 1000W/m2 of solar radiation.

How does power vary on a solar panel at different angles?

The power varies depending on the angle the solar radiation hits the panels. At angles closer to 90 degrees, the solar panel generates the most energy.

What kind of energy is being produced by sunlight solar panel?

Sunlight and photovoltaic (PV) panels (solar panels) produce electricity.Sunlight and a solar thermal collector produce heat by capturing solar radiation. The heat is then used to heat water, heat air, cook food, or heat a fluid that drives a turbine which creates electricity.Photoelectrochemical cells or PECs are solar cells that produce electrical energy or hydrogen in a process similar to the electrolysis of water.
