    having a bit of trouble on a project and could do with a little help.

    for my grade 12 assignment i have to find the efficiency of a solar updraft tower and ran into some trouble trying to calculate the tempurature of the air that reaches the base of the tower.

    i have the diameter and height of the collector and how much energy it recieves. if i can find the tempurature i can feed it into an equation to find the flow rate.

    i just need a formula that combines air flow rate and air tempurature.
    any ideas?

    thanks in advance
