In the ocean there are many types of motion. One type of motion is tides. Tides are the systematic rise and fall of ocean water caused by the moon. The sun and moon pull on the earth and the water. The moon pulls most of the water nearest to it creating a high tide.
Ast 103 Amber Titus Shrinking Moon Lab The moon along with the rest of Earth’s atmosphere has such a major impact of human’s lives. Space has provided natural entertainment of shooting stars, planets, comets, stars, and meteorites. The one space object that has stuck out to me and I am sure others is, the moon. The moon places a huge role in everyday life because we see it rise, set change phases, change colors, etc. With all this change people are constantly questioning certain things about the moon and its origins.
Have you ever looked into the night sky every day for a month to notice that Mars has moved from west to east to west again, that’s retrograde motion. Retrograde motion is a natural occurrence that appears to happen to other planets in our solar system from earth. Retrograde motion is what happens when a planet (we will use Mars as an example) looks as if it is reversing. This occurs when the Earth passes the planet. Direct motion and retrograde motion both occur with Mars, direct motion is when the planet seems to be going forward, and retrograde is when it seems to be going backwards.
Natural Causes of Climate Change The earth’s climate is influenced and changed through natural causes like volcanic eruptions, ocean current, the earth’s orbital changes and solar variations. Volcanic eruptions - When a volcano erupts it throws out large volumes of sulphur dioxide (SO2), water vapour, dust, and ash into the atmosphere. Large volumes of gases and ash can influence climatic patterns for years by increasing planetary reflectivity causing atmospheric cooling. Tiny particles called aerosols are produced by volcanoes. Because they reflect solar energy back into space they have a cooling effect on the world.
Which of the following planets is NOT a gas giant? a. Earth b. Jupiter c. Saturn d. Uranus 16. The sun gets its energy from a. burning fuel b. nuclear fusion c. shrinking due to gravity d. convection 17. The number of on any planet can be used to estimate how old the surface is.
Read on to see examples of how calculus is used in astronomy. An Essential Element Calculus is the mathematical language that describes change. One of the most common uses of calculus is to find the rate at which the position of a moving body changes with time. The laws of planetary motion that are commonly used by astronomers to calculate orbits are derived using calculus. An astronomer who wants to send a rocket into space uses calculus to work out how much fuel the rocket needs to accelerate to the correct velocity.
As Miranda and her neighbors watched the “once in a lifetime” event, they noticed the meteor had struck the moon, and the moon instantly god bigger. It was pushed closer into orbit, causing many problems for humanity. The moon is the center of all
Meteorites are heavy. Most meteorites are much denser than ordinary Earth rocks. The unusual weight is due to high iron content. Even stone meteorites will feel heavier in the hand than most Earth rocks. Meteorites likely traveled in space for millions of years before visiting us here on Earth.
The Moon has no atmosphere to block some of the sun’s rays in the day or to trap heat at night, and this is why temperatures on the Moon range from -233 degrees Celsius to 123 degrees Celsius at those respective times. It is the presence of greenhouse gases, not limited to but including Carbon Dioxide, Water Vapour and Methane, which protect the planet from harmful radiation and trap in heat which equips our planet with the tools for life. Global Warming refers to climate change which gradually raises the average temperature of the earth’s lower atmosphere, generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by carbon dioxide, CFCs, and other pollutants. Scientists and the general public are concerned that there may come a point when the damage caused by human-caused Global Warming may become irrevocable, leading to permanently changed ecosytems and more extreme climates across the
