Hi,
how do we calculate an estimated average temperature for the moon's surface on the the data given below:

Diameter of the moo: 4680 Km

average albedo of the moon: 0.120

Fraction of the emitted energy of the sun reaching the moon: 0000000000336

This sounds like a homework problem.

You would also need to know that the Sun emits 4x10^33 ergs per second.

It is not an home work problem as you think.It is just that i feel like knowing how to work it out for future reference.
