Transcript of Star Wars

Star Wars Biology Mammalian Sentient Species Reptilian Sentient Species Avian Sentient Species PHYSICS In Star Wars every one is unique, no two beings are identical. Different types of entities are found here, these beings resemble and some has few traits of what is seen on Earth. Few that are classified in Star Wars from the Sentient Species are: Reptiles are a class of vertebrates, which mostly are cold-blooded and covered with scales or bony plates. They are typically evolved form of species such as lizards, snakes and crocodiles. Most are land based that lay eggs to reproduce. They are warm-blooded, feathered and winged creatures. They have soft bones and strong muscles that make them fly. However, some avian sentient species doesn’t have the ability to fly. K= T^2/r^3
T=Period (years)
r=radius (AU)
K is the constant that is same for all the bodies orbiting around one focal point but in this case there are two focal points- 2 suns therefore this might not work. But if assumed that this theory can also be applied to binary planets than this formula can be used to find the T or the r of the other bodies that orbit the same 2 suns. Biology and Physics Behind Aquatic Sentient Species They are descended from marine life. Aquatic lifeforms included those that could breathe water, air, or both. Therefore, these lifeforms often fit into other categories. At the time of the creation of the Star wars movie, binary planets could not exist in the galaxy. But later the scientists began to hypothesis such existence but still had no proof. But with the discovery made by the NASA's Kepler mission in 2011 of the planet Kepler-16b, this belief was proven right by providing actual proof. Like mammals from Earth, they are warm-blooded vertebrates. Most of them are covered with hair and have mammary glands to nurture their young. Craniopod Sentient Species They are lifeforms that are truly alien that they did not fit easily into any of the common categories.
They are categorized as exotic sentient species Plant Sentient Species They synthesize energy through water, nutrients and sunlight. Some are immobile while others can move to find better living conditions. Insect Sentient Species These species are arthropods, with defined body segments(commonly head, thorax and abdomen). Most insectoid have hard exoskeletons, wings and several legs. Invertebrates Hard Invertebrates Bibliography http://scifi.about.com/od/starwars/u/UserPath_Star-Wars.htm
http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/kepler/news/kepler-16b.html These creatures are called Motts from the planet Naboo. Tree-dwelling Shaupaut use their claws to catch food. Humanoids are the most dominant species, they are often describe Near-Human species. Aqualish Duro Devaronian Wookiee Givin Gotal Rodian Their fingers allowed them to grip trees and rocky inclines. They also normally have green skin, allowing them to blend in with the jungle world. Ssi-ruu Ssi-ruu are large bipedal lizards covered with thick scales. Despite being a reptile they are warm-blooded.They also relie on their nose tonues for vision. Neti Neti have tough gray skin(similar to plant bark), multiple branching arms and thick body trunks. They survive from photosynthesis and only need little amount of water. Ergesh One of the few races in the galaxy that mutated from plant based organisms. Their colors consist of green, brown and gray. Fefze Fefze are insects with black carapaces and two antennae which provides their sense of smell and hearing. Rubbing their antennae together to communicate. thier carapaces can also split into two wings to fly short distances. Geonosians Genonians have hard exoskeleton providing them protection. Despite their thin builds, they are capable of building gigantic hives and factories. Being able to construct these structures, they are considered as technical geniuses. Soft Invertebrates Species with hard outer bodies without internal skeleton. Soft-bodied species without bones. Their heads and torso are covered with carapace, strong enough for protection.They also have two antennae which increases their spatial perception. Sauvax eat algae and slime. Sauvax Hutt's slimy coating of sweat and mucus protects them from burns. They are also indigestible and are immune to many lethal chemicals. Also the Force of Gravity (Fg) can be looked at as one of the properties of the planet. As Newton figured out about centripetal force equal to the force of gravity.
With the incident of an apple falling on his head he discovered the force of gravity. He wondered if the force of gravity is what pulls the moon towards Earth. His theory about this rule using the planet Kepler 16b and its 2 suns in place of the Earth's moon and the Earth is that centripetal force acting on the planet is force of gravity that pulls the planet towards the suns in an elliptical shape. The planet was being pulled towards the sun like a falling apple But the planet is also moving off tangentially so that the rate at which it was falling matched the rate at which the sun curved away from it. Hutt Gopali Fiona Leah Bianca BY: Quor'sav, or Quor'savs, are a species of warm-blooded sentients with both avian and monotreme characteristics. Their strong, skinny and tall legs and long necks make them tower over most other species at 3.5 meters in height. Quor'savs aremore vulnerable to illnesses and pollutants than many other species. They lay eggs, which takes over a year to hatch, and the females often take on a motherly character when around friends and youth. Rishiis have an owl-like appearance, with a pair of large wings. At the ends of these wings, they have talon-like hands with opposite thumbs. They are excellent hunters, and would swoop down at very great speeds from cliffs to catch rodents in their lower levels. They possess a long, thin tail with a tuft of feathers at the tip. They have a talent for imitating language. They would often copy the voices and movements of other beings, and leads to the annoyance of the person being copied. Kepler's 3rd law was the law of periods. It stated that the ratio of a planets orbital period squared to its orbital radius cubed is a constant. All planets orbiting the same focal point follow this law and have the same constant. the binary stars of which the planet Tatooine revolves around share a common focal point. With this information, we can conclude that once the radius or period of one of the stars is known then we can calculate the other stars period or radius. The Star Wars movie was created 30 years ago. A new planet, Tatooine was created that existed in a different galaxy. It was where the protagonist came from. The planet was portrayed to have 2 suns that it revolved around. This type of planet( revolved around 2 suns)is called a Binary planet. It was created as a fictional planet because it was believed that Binary planets could not exist at the time. A binary star is a stellar system of two stars in which one star revolves around the other or both revolve around a common center- the area where mass is most concentrated.
(m1 v^2)/r= (Gm1 m2)/r^2
v= √((Gm2)/r)
m1=mass of the planet (kg)
G=universal constant
m2=mass of the suns (kg)
v=velocity of the planet (ms^(-1)) Planetary Properties Bith are craniopods with pale pink, yellow, or rarely green skin, large heads, large lidless eyes, toeless feet, and long fingers. Bith has only one lung, and exhaled through their skin. Their eyes are able to focus to 0.07 on the Gandok Scale and they could see microscopic details of nearby objects. Some effects of their incredible sensors was the effect of sonic grenades, or screamers, on them. It was described as causing their heads to explode. Similarly, Bith had high manual handiness which helped them manipulate fine tools, though their physical abilities with big motor skills was only average. Mon Calamari are fish-like amphibious humanoids with domed heads, webbed hands, and large eyes. Most Mon Calamari has salmon-colored skin, often parti-colored with light and dark patterns, though other skin colors were known. They could descend to depths of up to 30 meters below sea level without breathing, though they found it uncomfortable and often used organic gills. Mon Calamari could stay underwater for a long period of time, although a frightened Mon Calamari could drown underwater. They also did not need to decompress when resurfacing. Nautolans include low light vision and excellent swimming skills. They stand an average of 1.8 meters, has smooth green, blue, or brown skin, and large black or dark maroon eyes with lids that were seldom used. They are capable of remaining under water for up to three hours at a time. All Nautolans had fourteen sensory tentacles and multiple hearts, which are capable of beating separately. Nautolan language was maximized for use underwater and not fully pronounceable in a gaseous atmosphere. Nautolans use other communicative cues when submerged, such as reading the swirls in other Nautolans' large eyes. It can be said that the planet Tatooine is the planet Kepler 16b. Therefore, the properties of the planet Kepler 16b can be looked at as the same for the planet Tatooine. The properties: the mass, gravitational force, time period, radius, velocity, and etc. By looking at the fact that Fc= Fg we can find the velocity of the planets The planets created in the star wars universe have properties which are very similar to each other. They all create their own gravity and because they rotate around the same focal point they can have the same period and radius.
