In about five billion years, the Sun will evolve into a red giant. Assume that its surface temperature will decrease to about half its present value of K, while its present radius of m will increase to m, which is the current Earth-Sun distance. Calculate the ratio of the total power emitted by the Sun in its red giant stage to its present power.
