  3. Luminosity
  4. Solar Wind
  5. Flares v Prominences?
  1. a Large 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
  2. b The outward flow of charged particles leaving the Sun
  3. c Transfers radiation from nuclear fusion outward through CONVECTION
  4. d Shorter: Flares
    Longer: Prominences
    Smaller: Flates
    Bigger: Prominences
    More Violent: Flares
  5. e Total energy radiated by the Sun. NOT BRIGHTNESS!
