Bond Albedo

Output: Press calculate

Formula:Bond Albedo = albedo

Introduction to Bond Albedo

Bond albedo is the fraction of power in the total electromagnetic radiation incident upon an astronomical body that is reflected by the body in all directions. It's a unitless quantity within the range of 0 to 1, where 0 indicates a perfectly absorbing body and 1 indicates a perfectly reflecting body.

Parameter usage:


Data validation

The albedo value should be a number between 0 and 1.


This formula calculates the bond albedo of an astronomical body based on the given albedo value. It's widely used in astronomy and planetary science to understand the reflective properties of celestial bodies.
