Transcript of Solar Flares

By: Joshua Andreu &
Ryan Rodriguez Solar Flares
& The Sun Solar Flares are violent eruptions in a star's Photosphere. A Photosphere is the area of a star that is no longer transparent. For example, since the sun is made up of gasses entirely, its not visible. The photosphere is where the sun is no longer transparent. Solar flares happen when there are long periods of solar activity. A star will then release extremely large amounts of Gasses into space. Solar flares tend to occur on sun spots. Sun spots are areas of disruption o the Sun's surface. Sun spots are not completely understood yet. Nobody knows how they form or how large they are. Solar flares have effected earth but not by very much. Solar flares ca interfere with radio waves and other waves on earth. Solar Flares can destroy the natural protection we receive from earth. As the magnetic field and atmosphere. Solar Flares are extremely weak compared to how humans effect the atmosphere. We destroy the atmosphere a lot more with greenhouse gasses and theories like global warming. What Are Solar Flares ? A sunspot is an area on the sun that is darker than the rest of the sun. Sunspots usually appear in cluster/bunches. These spots are created because that part of the sun is cooler than the rest.

Web. 5 June 2012. <http://www.kidsastronomy.com/our_sun.htm>. The sun is the center of the solar system. The sun is star and is classified as a G2V. G2 stands for the temperature of the sun,
5505 °C, and V is the type of star the sun is, a (yellow) dwarf. Three quarters of the sun consist of hydrogen and mostly the rest consist of helium. Every second 700 million tons of these compounds explode to release energy. Scientists know ahead of time when a solar Flare is brewing. Solar Flares are nothing to be concerned about. Do not worry about them. They don't effect the earth or humans in any major way. You can not prevent them nor avoid them. Please Have Your Undivided Attention To My Good Friend Joshua The sun's mass is 1.9891×10 to the thirtieth power kg and accounts for about 99.86% of the total mass of the solar system . The mass of the sun is 330,000 times that of the earth. Works Cited
