321 Chapter 14 of Modern Physics 4/e is available through the Freeman Physics Web site at www.whfreeman.com/modphysics4e. Chapter 14 ! Astrophysics and Cosmology 14-1. = 4 km/s. Assuming Sun’s rotation to be uniform, so that , then = 2 km/s. Because v = 2 B r/T, or 14-2. The Sun’s luminosity 14-3. The fusion of 1 H to 4 He proceeds via the proton-proton cycle. The binding energy of 4 He is so high that the binding energy of two 4 He nuclei exceeds that of 8 Be produced in the fusion reaction: 4 He + 4 He 6 8 Be + ( and the 8 Be nucleus fissions quickly to two 4 He nuclei via an electromagnetic decay. However, at high pressures and temperatures a very small amount is always present, enough for the fusion reaction: 8 Be + 4 He 6 12 C + ( to proceed. This 3- 4 He fusion to 12 C produces no net 8 Be and bypasses both Li and B, so their concentration in the cosmos is low. 14-4. The Sun is 30,000 c A y from Galactic center = radius of orbit
