Transcript of The Layers of the Sun's Atmosphere

The Layers of the Sun's Atmosphere The Photosphere The Photoshpere is 5800K (9980.6 ºF). The Chromoshpere The Chromosphere is a thin layer that is 10,000K (17540.6 ºF). The Layers of the Sun's Atmosphere are the Photosphere, the Chromosphere and the Corona. The Corona This is the outermost layer of the sun, it is 1,000,000 km thick, it has a temperature of about 1,000,000 K (1799540.6 ºF).

They can damage Earth's satellites that we use for our cell phones. They also cause the Aurora Lights. Source: phobos.physics.uiowa.edu/~kaaret/sgu_s05/L09_sun_outer.ppt Solar Flare These can be
up to 40,000,000 K
(71999540.6 ºF) This is the approximate size of the
Earth compared to a solar flare. These are relitavely similar to coronal mass ejections. This layer can only be seen during a solar eclipse. This layer is hotter than the photosphere (the inner layer). The reason why is unknown. This layer emits a high energy radiation that can be observed using X rays. This is the layer of the sun's
atmosphere that we can see
all the time during the day
without clouds. Each of these layers have
a different tempurature. The rotation of the sun is measured with the sunspots in the photospere. The Equator takes about 25 days for a full rotation while the poles take up to 36 days.
