The Core -The purpose of the sun is to power the sun itself and provide the necessary energy to drive the nuclear fusion processes. -The tempature of the core is more than 10,000,000 Kelvin and equals more than 15 million degrees and is hot enough to attract protons to each other. -The thickness of the core is estimated to be 150,000 kilometers composed in its radius and is estimated to be 93,205 miles. -The Core is composed if plasma, hydrogen and helium nucleus’s

The Radiation Zone -The purpose of the radiation zone is to make electromagnetic radiation and to convey the energy as protons and the section of the solar interior. -The Tempature of the radiation zone falls from 7,000,000 to 2,000,000 Celsius. -The Thickness of the Radiation Zone is the length of 45% of the suns full length and is estimated to be over 348,000 kilometers at max. -Is composed of radiation, light photons, massive amounts of heat and energy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
