Chapter 6 Exam Review: How is Einstein's famous equation, E= mc squared, important in understanding the Sun? It explains the fact that the Sun generates thermal energy by losing some 4 <a href="/keyword/million-tons/" >million tons</a> of mass each day. The &quot;lost&quot; 4 <a href="/keyword/million-tons/" >million tons</a> is converted to an amount of energy equal to this mass times the speed of light squared. Note that although 4 <a href="/keyword/million-tons/" >million tons</a> per day sounds like a lot, it is quite small compared to the Sun's total mass. In what way is Venus most similar to Earth? Both planets are nearly the same size. Imagine that an alien spaceship crashed onto Earth. Which statement would most likely be true? It would crash in the ocean. This is very likely, because the Earth's surface is about covered by oceans. Which statement about the recently-discovered object Eris is false? It is thought to be the first example of a new class of planet. Actually, it's very similar to Pluto, so it's not a new kind of object. Mars has two moons that are most similar in character to: Small asteroids Which planet listed below has the most extreme seasons? Uranus: because of it's large axis tilt-- it essentially rotates on its side compared to its orbit. In what way is Pluto more like a comet than a planet? It is made mostly of rock and ice. Which of the following is NOT a major pattern of motion in the solar system? Nearly all comets orbit the Sun in the same direction and roughly the same plane: Comets of the Oort cloud, which are the most numerous, have randomly oriented orbits going in all directions around the Sun. Which of the following is NOT a major difference between the terrestrial and Jovian planets in our solar system? Terrestrial planets contain large quantities of ice and Jovian planets do not. Terrestrial planets contain very little ice, since they are made mostly of metal and rock. The following statements are all true. Which one counts as an &quot;exception to the rule&quot; in being unusual for our solar system? The diameter of Earth's Moon is about that of Earth. This is surprisingly large compared to other planet/moon size differences in our solar system. According to our theory of solar system formation, which law best explains why the solar nebula spun faster as it shrank in size? Law of conservation of angular momentum. To conserve angular momentum, the cloud particles had to move faster around the cloud center as their distance from the center decreases. According to our theory of solar system formation, which law best explains why the central regions of the solar nebula got hotter as the nebula shrank in size? The law of conservation of energy As it shrank in size, gas particles lost gravitational potential energy. Since energy must be conserved, this energy because thermal energy. According to our present theory of solar system formation, which of the following best explains why the solar nebula ended up with a disk shape as it collapsed? It flattened as a natural consequence of collisions between particles in the nebula, changing random motions into more orderly ones. What is the primary basis upon which we divide the ingredients of the solar nebula into four categories (hydrogen/helium; hydrogen compound; rock; metal) The temperatures at which various materials will condense from gaseous form to solid form. According to our present theory of solar system formation, how did Earth end up with enough water to make oceans? The water was brought to the forming Earth by planetesimals that accreted beyond the orbit of Mars. Water ice could condense from the solar nebula gas only beyond the frost line, which lay beyond the orbit or Mars.
