turbidity factor

A certain smoggy atmosphere has a turbidity factor n  4. Calculate how the direct, cloudless sky insolation varies with the Sun altitude angle? How much is this reduced from that of a clear s

Do you know what "turbidity factor" means? Are you specifically referring to the "Linke turbidity factor"? That is given by [tex]T= \frac{ln(p)}{ln(q)}[/tex] where p is the transmission coefficient of the actual sky and q is the transmission coefficient of an "ideal" sky (your "cloudless sky").

The link you provided goes to a section of a text book dealing with energy conversion due to phase changes - nothing to due with "turbidity" as far as I can tell. Please clarify.

In the future, please use different titles for different threads. I have changed the Advanced Thermodynamics question to "turbidity factor."
