### The electrical output of a solar cell depends on the

• A.

• B.

• C.

• D.

Explanation
The electrical output of a solar cell depends on the intensity of solar radiation because the amount of energy that can be converted into electricity by the solar cell is directly proportional to the intensity of the sunlight it receives. Higher intensity means more photons are hitting the solar cell, resulting in a greater generation of electrical current. Conversely, lower intensity of solar radiation would result in a lower electrical output from the solar cell.

### What will happen when the panel is rotated so that light falls on the solar cell at an angle θ to the line perpendicular to the panel? The power delivered by the solar cell will:

• A.

Decrease

• B.

Increase

• C.

Remains the same

A. Decrease
Explanation
When the panel is rotated so that light falls on the solar cell at an angle θ to the line perpendicular to the panel, the power delivered by the solar cell will decrease. This is because the solar cell is designed to receive maximum sunlight when it is perpendicular to the light source. As the angle of incidence increases, the amount of sunlight reaching the solar cell decreases, resulting in a decrease in power output.
