Classification of things

Classification of Things

Dr. Harold Williams

Montgomery College Planetarium

Who why what where when and how

Who, Why, What, Where, When, and How

  • Who and What are classification questions

  • Who and Why are Religious questions

  • What, Where, When, and How are Scientific Questions

  • Who, Why, What, Where, When, and How are Philosophical Questions

  • Classification spans both Religion and Science by asking Who and What!


Some common classifications in science

Some Common Classifications in Science

  • Periodic Table of the Elements

  • Particle Physics and the Standard Model

  • Fundamental Interactions of Physics

  • Electron Orbitals or Probability Distributions, the Auf Bau

  • Geological Time Scales

  • Biology and the Tree of Life

  • Spectral Classification of the Stars

  • Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram and Luminosity Classes as well as spectral classifications

  • Types of Star Clusters

  • Types of Galaxies


Classification of things

Big Bang made 75% H, 25% He – stars make everything else


Fundamental particles http en wikipedia org wiki elementary particles

Fundamental Particleshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elementary_particles


What are the fundamental building blocks of matter

What are the fundamental building blocks of matter?

Proton

Neutron


Quarks

Quarks

Proton

Neutron

  • Protons and neutrons are made of quarks

  • Up quark (u) has charge +2/3

  • Down quark (d) has charge -1/3


Fundamental forces according to the wikipedia

Fundamental Forces according to the Wikipedia

  • Electromagnetism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_interaction

  • Weak Nuclear Force http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weak_interactions

  • Electroweak http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electroweak_interaction

  • Strong Nuclear Force http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strong_interaction

  • Gravity http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravity


Electrons in atoms auf bau

Electrons in Atoms, Auf Bau

  • In quantum mechanics an electron in an atom does not orbit in the usual sense

  • We can know only the probability of finding an electron at a particular spot


The geological time scale

The Geological Time Scale


Tree of life

Tree of Life

  • Mapping genetic relationships has led biologists to discover this new “tree of life.”

  • Plants and animals are a small part of the tree.

  • Suggests likely characteristics of common ancestor.


Classification of things

Lines in a star’s spectrum correspond to a spectral type that reveals its temperature http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spectral_type

(Hottest) O B A F G K M (Coolest)


Classification of things

Remembering Spectral Types

(Hottest) O B A F G K M (Coolest)

  • Oh, Be A Fine Girl, Kiss Me

  • Oh, Be A Fine Guy, Kiss Me

  • Oh, Be A Fine Gay, Kiss Me

  • Only Boys Accepting Feminism Get Kissed Meaningfully


Pioneers of stellar classification

Pioneers of Stellar Classification

  • Annie Jump Cannon and the “calculators” at Harvard laid the foundation of modern stellar classification

What are the two types of star clusters

What are the two types of star clusters?


Classification of things

Open cluster: A few thousand loosely packed stars

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_clusters


Classification of things

Globular cluster: Up to a million or more stars in a dense ball bound together by gravity http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globular_cluster


What are the three major types of galaxies

A better name

A better name

  • Spiral galaxies might be better named by calling them Disk galaxies!

  • Some Disk galaxies have no or little spiral structure, but they are still have disks.
