Answer:Force of 17.6 micrometer is acting on the surface due to the sunlight.

Explanation:Given that,

Intensity of sunlight is

It strikes a flat collecting surface perpendicularly and is totally absorbed. The area of the surface is

So, force is given by :

c is speed of light

So, force of 17.6 micrometer is acting on the surface due to the sunlight.
