Solar optical properties

Any optical material obey the following law under any given wave length: T+a+p=1

T, a, and p are function of А,

A = absorptance p = reflectance X = wave length (m)

Transmitted solar radiation-80%

Where f = frequency (HZ)

C = light speed (3xl08 m/s)

Architectural glass:

Opaque to long-wave radiation Transparent to short-wave radiation (sun light)

This is the well-known greenhouse effect.
