$100 Question from Mr. Golden Sun
List the 4 layers of the Sun from
innermost to outermost.
$100 Answer from Mr. Golden Sun
Core, Photosphere, Chromosphere, Corona
$200 Question from Mr. Golden Sun
How does solar wind affect Earth?
$200 Answer from Mr. Golden Sun
The wind comes from the corona and is full of ions
and is deflected by Earth’s
magnetic field/trapped in
Van Allen belts and react with
gasesgive off light(aurora).
$300 Question from Mr. Golden Sun
What causes sunspots to form?
$300 Answer from Mr. Golden Sun
They are where the magnetic field
penetrates the photosphere.
$400 Question from Mr. Golden Sun
Compare solar flares with prominences.
$400 Answer from Mr. Golden Sun
Solar flares are violent eruptions of particles/radiation
while prominences are arcs of gas ejected from the
chromospheres/condenses in corona and comes
back to surface.
$500 Question from Mr. Golden Sun
How does the Sun create energy for solar activity?
$500 Answer from Mr. Golden Sun
Fusion: lightweight nuclei into heavier H with He
$100 Question from Loco-Motion
This is when two stars are gravitationally
bound and orbit a common center of mass?
$100 Answer from Loco-Motion
Binary stars
$200 Question from Loco-Motion
Arrange the following from smallest to largest:
parsec, astronomical unit,
kilometer, light-year.
$200 Answer from Loco-Motion
Smallest Kilometer, AU, Light-year, Parsec <--Largest
$300 Question from Loco-Motion
Explain blue shift and red shift
in regards to stars. Be sure to include
why we associate colors
with the shift!
$300 Answer from Loco-Motion
Blue towards Red away;
wavelength relates to color wavelength
in visible spectrum.
$400 Question from Loco-Motion
Why might a star have the same absolute
magnitude but different apparent magnitudes?
$400 Answer from Loco-Motion
Appears to be same brightness but different distances.
$500 Question from Loco-Motion
Defend or refute this statement & explain:
As the distance between the star and the
Earth[observer] increases, the parallax
$500 Answer from Loco-Motion
True because the angle between the star and the
Earth at two different positions during orbit become smaller.
$100 Question from H-R Diagram
What three characteristics of stars does the
H-R diagram show?
$100 Answer from H-R Diagram
Color, temperature, and luminosity
$200 Question from H-R Diagram
90% of stars occupy this region in the
HR diagram?
$200 Answer from H-R Diagram
Main sequence stars
$300 Question from H-R Diagram
Illustrate on the board where the Sun
would fall on the HR diagram?
$300 Answer from H-R Diagram
Roughly the center of main sequence
$400 Question from H-R Diagram
What are the hottest and most dim stars called?
$400 Answer from H-R Diagram
White dwarfs
$500 Question from H-R Diagram
Where would a black hole would
go on the H-R diagram?
$500 Answer from H-R Diagram
Off the chart to the right (WAY over to the right) and
underneath (WAY under).
$100 Question from Lifecycle
Where all stars form?
$100 Answer from Lifecycle
$200 Question from Lifecycle
Whether or not a star will eventually form a
white dwarf or a supernova depends on this?
$200 Answer from Lifecycle
$300 Question from Lifecycle
After an average sized star,
a star will become this?
$300 Answer from Lifecycle
Red Giant
$400 Question from Lifecycle
Why do stars move through
stages during their life cycle?
$400 Answer from Lifecycle
When hydrogen in core is gone, cannot undergo fusion
$500 Question from Lifecycle
Explain how the lifetime of stars is
determined by their mass?
$500 Answer from Lifecycle
High mass stars will burn fuel more quickly
versus low mass which burn slowly.
