Astro 4: Final Study Guide Note: I would be prudent if you know the answers to these questions, but remember that they’re not all inclusive! If you have any questions yourself, just send me an email! Also, make sure you have the first two study guides, and understand the material from those midterms, since the test is cumulative! - Why can't we see well through the disk of our galaxy? If we wanted to look through the disk, what wavelengths would we look in? - What are the different parts of a spiral galaxy? How large are each of the parts? - Where are we in the galaxy? How far away from the center of the galaxy? How do we know where the center of the galaxy is? - How fast is the sun orbiting around the center of the galaxy? What does this say about the mass inside our own orbit? - Where does star formation occur in stars? What actually composes the spiral arms? What is a spiral density wave? How does this make more star formation? - What are the steps in the formation of our galaxy? - What are the types of stars that you might find in the disk of a galaxy? What are the types of stars we might find in the bulge of the galaxy? - What is an elliptical galaxy? What types of stars are in an elliptical galaxy? -
