That depends on your geographical location. 6 may be common for some parts
of Ca. and Arizona etc.. but not for the rest of the world.

Why 6?

Shouldn't that be insolation factor of 6?

Oh, I know what it is based on.  But why did Malcolm think the OP had
an insolation of 6, vs some other value; especially when he posted
that he was in a 4.2 zone.

 LOL...too funny. I saw that also and it slipped by me. This is why I guessed
at 4 as an average location...LOL

I was thinking some sort of geographical location. Too much gardening
reading and word "zone".

I probably thought that in the original formula 4 hours was used and the total
for the expression was divided by 4...4 hours being 1/6 it made more sense to
divide the result by 6 than 4. Apparently I've been out of the loop too long and
missed something in the formula.
