C utilities and oil companies. D shorter wavelengths of gamma rays, X-rays, and ultraviolet.
E internal combustion at Earth's core. A the Sun is the largest star in the Milky Way Galaxy. B the Milky Way is part of our Solar System. C the Sun produces energy through fusion processes. D the Sun is also a planet. E the Sun has a liquid atmosphere. B the Sun produces energy through fusion. C the Sun is by far the largest star in the Milky Way Galaxy. D the Sun is average in colour, temperature, and size when compared to other stars.
E the Sun constantly emits clouds of electrically charged particles. B is one of millions of galaxies in the universe. C contains approximately 20 billion stars.
D is the centre of the universe. E cannot be seen from Earth. A each galaxy has one star. B galaxies are measured by the speed of sound. C a typical galaxy, such as the Milky Way, is about 5 billion miles in diameter.
D great clouds of gas and dust known as nebula occur within galaxies. E three galaxies exist in the universe.
B galaxy. C planets. D ocean basins. E atmosphere. B a narrow band of hazy light that stretches across the night sky. C the alignment of the planets in the solar system. D the plane of the ecliptic. E axial tilt. B unknown origins. C a nebula of dust and gases. D other planets. E transference of energy into matter through fission. Answer: C Diff: 2 Type: MC Page Ref: 42 Skill: Factual 10 The basic idea behind the planetesimal hypothesis is that A planets form as a direct result of the nuclear fusion of nebular gases and planetesimals.
B planets form from the remains of super-giant planetesimals that undergo nuclear fission and blow apart, thereby creating smaller objects—the planets. C early in the solar system's history, a star passed near to the Sun and pulled off gases that eventually condensed to form planets.
D matter in a nebula experiences mutual gravitational attraction, and this results in the gradual accretion of larger and larger bodies—planetesimals. E electrical space storms charged particles that were attracted together to form planets. A they form in great clouds of gas and dust known as nebula.
B very few violent physical phenomena occur in stars. C new atoms are created in space and attracted to stars. D nuclear fission destroys stars.
E stars have a solid iron core. B kilometres per hour. C kilometres per second. D 1 kilometres per second. E kilometres per year. A the Earth-Sun distance averages million kilometers. B it takes light an average of 8 hours and 20 seconds to travel from the Sun to Earth.
C Earth is closer to the Sun in July perihelion and farther away in January aphelion. A It takes light about years to cross our galaxy. B If you could see the most distant parts of our universe, you would be looking at least ten billion years back in time. C Because of the distances to the stars, it is impossible to see stars "in the present. D All of the above are true. E None of the above are true. A a star and the planets that orbit it make up a solar system. B it takes light about 10 years to cross our galaxy.
C a galaxy consists of hundreds of solar systems. D when we look at the stars in the night sky, we are looking forward in time. E time and distance are not related in the universe. B the bulk remains with all the planets and their satellites. C most resides in the planet Jupiter—the largest planet in the solar system. D most is scattered about the solar system as individual atoms and molecules. E there is no matter in our Solar System, only energy. B helium is fused together to form hydrogen.
C hydrogen splits to form helium. D helium splits to form hydrogen. E oxygen splits from ozone. B planetesimals. C free neutrons. D positively charged hydrogen nuclei and free electrons. E oxygen and carbon dioxide.
