### Description

Review for the 11.2/11.3 quiz

## Resource summary

### Question 1

Question
Label the parts of the Surface of the Sun.
• Solar Flare
• Solar Flare
• Solar Prominences
• Chromosphere
• Photosphere
• Corona
• Sun Spot

### Question 2

Question
We use these units to measure distance in Space: [blank_start]AU[blank_end], [blank_start]Light-years[blank_end], [blank_start]Scientific Notation[blank_end], [blank_start]Parralax[blank_end], and [blank_start]Triangulation[blank_end]
• AU
• Light-years
• Scientific Notation
• Parralax
• Triangulation

### Question 3

Question
What is the definition of AU?
• The astronomical unit (AU) is a unit of length, roughly the distance from the Earth to the Sun.
• The astronomical unit (AU) is a unit of length, roughly the distance from the Earth to Mars.

### Question 4

Question
Define a Light-Year:
• The distance light travels in a year
• a unit of astronomical distance equivalent to the distance that light travels in two years, which is 9.4607 × 1012 km (nearly 6 trillion miles)

### Question 5

Question
Define Scientific Notation:
• Scientific notation is a mathematical expression used to represent a decimal number between 1 and 10 multiplied by ten, so you can write large numbers using less digits.
• Scientific notation is a mathematical expression used to represent a decimal number between 1 and 100 multiplied by ten, so you can write large numbers using less digits.

### Question 6

Question
Define Parralax:
• the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions, e.g., through the viewfinder and the lens of a camera.
• the position or direction of an object appears to stay the same when viewed from different positions, e.g., through the viewfinder and the lens of a camera.

### Question 7

Question
Define Triangulation:
• Uses simple geometry to determine distance in space by using a baseline and two angles
• Uses complex geometry to determine distance in space by using a baseline and three angles

### Question 8

Question
Which one in the proper conversion between standard and scientific notation? (Note: the numbers in the brackets are exponents)
• 4,750,000-------->4.75 X 10(6)
• 4,750,000-------->47.5 X 10(6)
• 4,750,000-------->4.75 X 10(5)

Question
Ice exists on: [blank_start]Mars[blank_end] and [blank_start]Earth[blank_end]
• Mars
• Murcury
• Pluto
• Earth
• Jupiter
• Saturn

### Question 11

Question
Water in the form of gas exists on: [blank_start]Earth[blank_end]
• Earth
• Mars
• Venus

### Question 12

Question
Label the Planets...Which ones are gas giants?
• Murcury
• Venus
• Earth
• Mars

### Question 13

Question
Triangulation is used to [blank_start]measure[blank_end] the [blank_start]distance[blank_end] to a [blank_start]star[blank_end] that is [blank_start]far away[blank_end].
• distance
• measure
• star
• far away
