Estimate the number of Solar neutrinos passing through a detector on the Earth in one second. Assume that the detector has a surface area of 1.0 square meters and is aligned so that it faces directly towards the centre of the Sun. Assume that every neutrino travels without any change (i.e. none are absorbed or converted to a different particle). Also assume that the energy carried out of the Sun by the neutrinos is negligible
