Langleys to w/m2?

Postby Guest » Mon Sep 06, 2004 12:08 pm

Is it possible to convert langleys to watts per meter 2? I have several measures of solar energy from different sources and would like to compare them if poosible.

Thanks.

According to NIST guide to SI units, one langley equals to 4.184E+04 joules per square meter.

Joule itself is watt * hour. So langleys can be converted to watt*hour per square meter, not just watts per square meter.

Check that publication again, in the W section all the way at the bottom. A Joule is Watt * sec. So there is a factor of 3600 between the two.
