Todays objective was "summarize the major features that a theory of solar system origins has to explain." CLICK HERE if you missed class or to review the nine model requirements that we discussed in class. Come see me if you have questions.
Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the life span of the sun and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to release energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation.
A model is an abstract, simplified representation of a system that makes its central features explicit and visible.
Examples of expressed/conceptual models
◦Bohr model of the atom/particle model of matter
◦Light ray model, water cycle model
◦Food web models and interactions between organisms
◦Computational models of the atmosphere
◦Natural selection model; protein synthesis model
Properties of the Sun
Layers of the Sun
Features due to the sun’s magnetic field
Path of energy from the core to earth.
EVIDENCE for each of the above
Please include both a visual and explanatory component.
