What is space
What is Space?

  • Not really empty

  • Stars, planets, etc.

  • Interstellar medium

    • Dust and Gas

    • Nebulas

Orion Nebula

Large Magellanic Cloud

Nebular hypothesis
Nebular Hypothesis

  • Random collisions of atoms

  • Areas of growing mass

    • Spherical shape

    • Pull in more matter

    • Increase in

      • Temperature

      • Pressure

    • Spin

      • Creates a bulge in the sphere

Nuclear fusion
Nuclear Fusion

  • High temperatures

  • 2 particles become 1

  • Releases a lot of energy

    • Video clip

  • Particle accelerators

    • Man-made

    • Create new elements

    • Find smallest particles

Spectroscopy activity
Spectroscopy Activity

  • Draw the lines that you see

    • Make sure the # of lines, color of the lines and order is accurate

  • Write a conclusion – based on your observations what can you conclude about the different materials and light you see the material produce


Warm up 1
Warm Up #1

  • Clicker Quiz

  • Compare conclusions from the spectroscopy activity

  • Turn in your research topic


What does a spectrum tell us
What does a spectrum tell us?

  • Each chemical/atom has a unique spectrum

    • Like a fingerprint

  • What chemicals are present

http://www.umsl.edu/~physics/Lab%20Connection/Electricity%20and%20Magnetism%20Lab/12-lab13.html


How is a spectrum created
How is a spectrum created?

  • All objects emit light

  • Pure light from a source

    • Continuous spectrum

  • If light passes through gas or dust

    • Light absorbed

    • Excites/heats atoms

    • Emit own light

    • Makes an emission spectrum

    • Unique

How do astronomers use spectra
How do astronomers use spectra?

  • Look at light from

    • Stars (gas in outer layers)

    • Nebula

  • Determine chemical composition

  • Can also determine movement of object

  • Activity
