The 4> here denotes the azimuthal angle of the sun from the south. , from sunrise or sunset to solar noon. After performing the simple integration we get Q = ~ (~m Y (sin AsinoH + cod cos 0 sin H). 18) In Eq. 18), H in the first term on the right is expressed in units of radians (180 = tt rad). 5% from unity. 9674 on July 5. 18) allows us to calculate the distribution of the daily solar energy per unit area over the top of the global atmosphere as functions of latitude and day of year.

In addition to these two factors, there is a very slow westward motion of the equinoctial points along the ecliptic, called precession, caused by the attraction of other planets upon the earth. Owing to the wobbling motion, the time when the earth is closest to the sun advances by about 25 minutes each year.
