  2. Random WalkThe random process of photon movement through the radiation zone to the convection zone.

          

  3. Solar FlareLarge explosion on the surface of the sun when hot gas breaks free of the magnetic field
    * emits energy
    *lasts only seconds, unlike longer prominences (but smaller and more violent)
    *can knock out electricity

          

  4. Solar ProminenceShorter: Flares
    Longer: Prominences
    Smaller: Flates
    Bigger: Prominences
    More Violent: Flares

          

  5. Solar ConstantLarge explosion on the surface of the sun when hot gas breaks free of the magnetic field
