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]
Answer
  • AU
  • Light-years
  • Scientific Notation
  • Parralax
  • Triangulation

Question 3

Question
What is the definition of AU?
Answer
  • 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:
Answer
  • 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:
Answer
  • 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:
Answer
  • 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:
Answer
  • 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)
Answer
  • 4,750,000-------->4.75 X 10(6)
  • 4,750,000-------->47.5 X 10(6)
  • 4,750,000-------->4.75 X 10(5)
