# The Planet Surface Rotational Warming Phenomenon

## The Planet Mean Surface Temperature Equation Tmean = [ Φ (1-a) S (β*N*cp)¹∕ ⁴ /4σ ]¹∕ ⁴

### Mercury's Corrected Effective temperature calculation Te.correct.mercury = 364 K

Mercury's Corrected Effective Temperature is Te.correct.mercury = 364 Κ

To calculate Mercury's Corrected Effective Temperature we should use the following data values

Mercury's (semi-major axis) - the average distance from the sun is

R = 0,387AU.

The solar irradiation on Mercury is

(1/R)² = (1AU/0,387AU)² = 2,584² = 6,6769 times stronger than that on Earth.

Mercury’s average surface albedo is: amercury = 0,068

Mercury is a rocky planet, Mercury’s surface irradiation accepting factor: Φmercury = 0,47

σ = 5,67*10⁻⁸ W/m²K⁴, the Stefan-Boltzmann constant

So = 1.361 W/m² the Solar constant

Mercury’s Corrected Effective Temperature Equation is:

Te.correct.mercury = [ Φ (1-a) So (1/R²) /4σ ]¹∕ ⁴

Te.correct.mercury = [ 0,47 (1-0,068) 1.361 W/m²*6,6769 /4*5,67*10⁻⁸ W/m²K⁴ ]¹∕ ⁴ =

Te.correct.mercury = [ 0,47 (0,932) 1.361 W/m²*6,6769 /4*5,67*10⁻⁸ W/m²K⁴ ]¹∕ ⁴ =

= (17.563.970.519,89)¹∕ ⁴ = 363,94 K = 364 K

Te.correct.mercury = 364 K
