Comments on Generation Rate


Please note the incorrect units are labeled for the Generation rate on the graph above

Hi, I have a question. What's the meaning of generation rate? Why do we need to times absorption coefficient in the equation for generation rate?

I think you should tell the units of measure for I and G here. I suppose they are W/m2 and W/m3 respectively, but I'm not sure (and this does not correspond to the unit indicated in the plot for standard solar spectrum)
