1. set it up: s=d/t --> s=(2+4+4.5)km/ 20min 2. Convert to meters/ seconds s= 10.5km/20 min x 1000m/km x 1min/60s= 8.75 m/s

Thank you for your help!

Explain the idea of parallaz. The closet star to the Sun, Proxima Centauri, is 4.2 light years away from us. What is its parallax angle?

Science
Okay, say im doing a science fair project, and I am not really good at coming up with questions, what would be a good question to ask about Newtons First Law of Motion

Astronomy
If we assume the Sun is made totally out of hydrogen, how many hydrogen atoms are contained with the Sun? If the Sun converts half of these hydrogen atoms into helium over its lifetime of about ten billion years, how many hydrogen atoms are converted per second? Mass of Sun = ...

Calculate the wavelength of peak emission for a typical sunspot and compare it to that of the photosphere. How many times brighter is the photosphere than a typical sunspot? (Hint: Assume the photosphere and a sunspot are good blackbodies for these calculations.)

Physics
Posted earlier but I wrote it incorrectly. How fast would a rocket have to be going in order to completely leave the solar system? (Assume that the Sun is the only mass in the solar system and that the rocket is beginning its journey from Earth's orbit?)

How fast would a rocket have to be going in order to completely leave the solar system? (For the second part of this problem, assume that the Sun is the only mass in the solar system and that the rocket is beginning its journey from Earth's orbit?)

Physics
How fast does a rocket need to be going to break free of Earth's gravity? How fast would it have to be going in order to completely leave the solar system? (For the second part of this problem, assume that the Sun is the only mass in the solar system and that the rocket is...
