Name_____________________________ Date__________________ Lab Partners________________________ Section________________ __________________________________ Solar Rotation Answer Sheet 1. Which direction is the Sun rotating? Explain. 2. Do sunspots live long enough on the surface of the Sun to survive one rotation? Explain. 3. What if the rotation rate of the Sun isn’t evenly divisible by 8 hours (the average time between the GONG images in the database)? Will the spot return to exactly the same place on the images after one rotation of the Sun? 4. Explain a strategy to that doesn’t require you to see a sunspot make one complete rotation which you can use to determine how long it takes the Sun to rotate through a full 360 degrees? (Hint: What if you were only able to measure how long it takes to rotate through 30 degrees?) 5. Does a spot to the left of the centerline have a negative or positive longitude? 6. How would you expect that the apparent latitude of a sunspot would change from one picture to the next over the course of a few days?

    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.
