Transcript of The Sun

The Sun
The sun is the star at the center of the solar system.
It has a diameter of about 1,392,000 kilometers (865,000 mi) (about 109 Earths), and its mass (about 2 × 1030 kilograms, 330,000 times that of Earth) accounts for about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System.
About three-quarters of the Sun's mass consists of hydrogen, while most of the rest is helium. Less than 2% consists of other elements, including iron, oxygen, carbon, neon, and others The Sun's color is white, although from the surface of the Earth it may appear yellow because of atmospheric scattering The sun is entirely made up of gas.
The energy of the sun comes from nuclear fusion reactions that occur deep inside the sun's core
In a fusion reaction, two atomic nuclei join together, creating a new nucleus. Fusion produces energy by converting nuclear matter into energy.
