Star

A ________________ is a huge mass made of very hot gases (____________________ and ____________________) which produces energy through ________ ___________ process, and then emits such energy in the form of radiation

Hydrogen

Helium

Nuclear Fusion

What is the closest star to Earth?

SUN

Proxima Centauri is the next closest at 4.2 light years away

The Sun’s Interior

Core:

__________ has a tremendously high temperature and pressure. The temperature is roughly 15 million °C. Here is where nuclear fusion occurs, turning four hydrogen nuclei into a single helium nucleus plus a LOT of energy.

The Sun’s Interior

Radiative Zone:

_____________________emits radiation. that spreads outwards. The temperature ranges from 15 million °C to one million °C. It may take photons of radiation millions of years to pass through the radiative zone, as they gradually make their way out

outwards.

The Sun’s Interior

Convective Zone:

____________________ the photons continue to travel outwards via convection (towards lower temperature and pressure). The temperature ranges from one million °C to 6,000 °C.

Outer Layers of the Sun

Photosphere

Chromosphere

Corona


Slide9 l.jpg

Photosphere

________________: Surface of the sun (lower atmosphere)

  • Consists of a layer of glowing gas (300 miles thick) which radiates most of the _____________ we see.

  • The temperature is about 5,500 °C

  • It has a thick grainy texture consisting of numerous, relatively small, bright markings called ____________.

light

granules

____________ are cool, dark spots on the surface. They are much bigger than the Earth. They occur in a 11-year cycles.

Sunspots

Slide10 l.jpg

Chromosphere

Corona

  • ________________ is the layer above the chromosphere.

  • The corona extends for millions of miles

  • Temperatures are tremendous, reaching one million °C.

Slide11 l.jpg

Solar flare

_______________ is a magnetic storm which includes a sudden, rapid, and intense variation in brightness. Radiation is emitted across almost the entire electromagnetic spectrum.

_______________________ is an arc of gas that erupts from the surface of the Sun. They form magnetic loops that hold relatively cool, dense gas suspended above the surface of the Sun.

Solar Prominence


Slide12 l.jpg

Solar Wind

The top of the corona is constantly flowing into space, where it becomes _________ ____________.

Solar wind


Slide13 l.jpg

How do we know what elements are in the sun and other stars?

By using spectroscopy

Spectroscopy

______________: the study of the spectrum of luminous beams and began back in the 19th century.

  • Separates various components of beams of light, different wavelength

  • Figures out the chemical composition of stars


Slide14 l.jpg

  • These lines show what elements are in the stars (spectral types).
