Astronomy 10 Chapter 11 1. Both used to be normal stars but the white dwarf ran out of hydrogen, they are both subjected to gravitational theories. A Neutron star is a fluid of neutrons, as hot at its surface as the inside of the sun and has a greater magnetic field. 3. Because its density is so high, neutrons spin in the same way that electrons do so must obey the Pauli Exclusion Principle.

Then Kaku states that force fields can do more than deflecting laser beams because it can levitate objects by the use of magnetic force fields. To support that, he explains that when we place two magnets opposite to each other, the two magnets will repel each other. However he wrote that making force fields and to levitate heavy objects is nearly impossible since we lack advanced technology. For my response, Kaku doesn’t completely explain everything. Suppose that you have a structure on a planet or a spaceship in the middle of nowhere, and suppose you don't want the force field on all the time either because there are times when protection isn't needed.
The idea could be considered as madness but others may say THIS IS PHYICS! ￼ After the giant nebula has started to converge it forms a Protostar, this Protostar is halfway between a nebula and a star. Eventually it gets to a point where it cant contract any more gas and the tremendous pressure starts to cause tremendous hear, and thus nuclear fusion begins, true story. ￼
here we go. The mechanics of how all the black holes in the movie acted were a bit sketchy. For example, the first black hole that Spock and The Narada exit/enter from was created from “Red Matter” in mere seconds. Accepting that red matter creates a black hole, this event would not take mere seconds as it did in the movie, but numerous years rather. In addition, entering a black hole would not only take thousands of years to occur, according to “Spaghetti theory” the gravity would be so intense as you neared the center of the black hole, your body would be stretched out into a thin strip of organic matter.
(2 points) Mars. B) Cosmic Origin of the Element CLUE: The substance collected has properties indicating that it contains a few different elements. The elements in your sample were formed in a supernova and released into space when the star exploded. Small stars and cosmic rays are not hot enough to form them. Look at the chart below to see which elements are typically formed in supernova and which ones are not.
These potential causes can be grouped together to be dismissed, having a similar end result. Nuclear war and the less likely, but still possible, gamma ray burst can be easily dismissed due to the lack of one key condition. A gamma ray burst is a type of explosion caused by a star nearing supernova. Its explosion sends a massive amount of radiation and energy in a very compact beam that could easily bake the planet with enough radiation that nearly all forms of complex life, humans included, would perish quickly. The resulting nuclear winter would occur causing the aforementioned minor ice age event, but it is the lack of radiation that prevents this from being a possible answer.
When the hotspots on the earth’s surface erupt, they send charged particles at the earth. The earth’s magnetic field however, deflects these away from the earth. As the poles shift, a weak spot in the magnetic field is exposed. This allows clear path for those particles. Typically it wouldn’t be that bad, nothing suntan and a nice day inside the house wouldn’t fix, but if the hotspot gets as large as scientists say, this spells immediate disintegration for anyone and anything on the earth’s surface.
Chapter 1 • Review the components of our solar system – sun, planets, moons, asteroids, comets and their definitions o Star – a large, glowing ball of gas that generates heat and light through nuclear fusion o Planet – a moderately large object that orbits a star; it shines by reflected light. Planets may be rocky, icy, or gaseous in composition o Moon (Satellite) – an object that orbits a planet o Asteroid – a relatively small and rocky object that orbits a star o Comet – a relatively small and icy object that orbits a star o Solar System – a star and all the material that orbits it, including its planets and their moons o Nebula – an interstellar cloud of gas and/or dust o Galaxy – a great island of stars in space, all held together
The answer to ”why does the Earth rotate” leads down the dark path of physics. A murky place where few have willingly gone. The answer lies within the law of conservation of angular momentum. Angular momentum is the rotational counterpart of momentum. The angular momentum of an object is defined relative to a fixed point.
