The power absorbed by a solar panel varies directly with its area. If an 8 square meter panel absorbs 8,160 watts of power, how much power does a 12 square meter solar panel absorb

We need to find the variation constant, k

 

So we have

 

P  = kA

 

8160  = 8k   divide both sides by 8

 

1020   = k

 

So

 

P =  1020 * 12   =  12,240 watts
