  2. Temperature:
  3. What happens to the Sun's magnetic field lines due to rotation?
  4. Solar Constant
  5. Photosphere
  1. a When inward Gravitational Force is balanced by outward Pressure.
    *Gravity wants the sun to collapse in
    *Pressure from hot gas pulls sun outwards
    *True for every star- guarantees stability
  2. b The measurement of average kinetic energy in molecules. NOT HEAT!
  3. c The amount of the Sun's energy reaching earth. "C"
  4. d The visible surface of the Sun. Creates visible light!
  5. e Field lines twist and break, creating heat as solar storms

5 True/False Questions

  1. The most abundant element in the Sun?Helium


  2. Coronal Holes:Holes in the corona from which solar wind escapes


  3. Why is the Sun not very dense?Occasionally field lines burst out of the surface and loop, thereby creating a sunspot pair.


  4. ChromosphereTransition from Photosphere to Corona


  5. Solar WindLarge 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
