Physics

Dimensions of solar constant are:


ANSWER

$$\left[ { M }^{ 1 }{ T }^{ -3 } \right] $$


SOLUTION
Solar constant(S) is defined as energy due to sun falling on an unit area per unit time .
$$\Rightarrow \displaystyle S=\left ( \frac{E}{A} \right )\times \frac{1}{T}=\left ( \frac{ML^{2}}{T^{2}} \right )\times \frac{1}{L^{2}}\times \frac{1}{T}=MT^{-3}$$
