Density is a physical characteristic, and is a measure of mass per unit of volume of a material or substance. Density is mass divided by volume. It is a measurement of the amount of matter in a given volume of something. Density is a very important property which can be used to identify a substance.… The higher an object's density, the higher its mass per unit of volume. The average density of an object equals its total mass divided by its total volume. A denser object (such as iron) will have less volume than an equal mass of some less dense substance (such as water). Water is the reference with its highest density at 3.98 Â°C ( Ï = 1 g/cm 3 ) and the correct SI unit of density Ï = 1000 kg/m 3 . 1 m 3 = 1,000,000 cm 3. Density Examples: Solid - water - noble gas Copper has a density of 8950 kg/m 3 = 8.95 kg/dm 3 = 8.95 g/cm 3 . Water has a density of 1000 kg/m 3 = 1000 g/L = 1.000 kg/dm 3 = 1.000 kg/L = 1.000 g/cm 3 = 1.000 g/mL. Helium has a density of 0.1785 kg/m3 = 0.1785 g/L = 0.0001785 kg/dm 3 = 0.0001785 kg/L = 0.0001785 g/cm 3 = 0.0001785 g/mL. High density also means that the protons, neutrons and electrons can be tightly packed together which is controlled by the internal electric force. When a substance is heated, it usually expands because the atoms start to vibrate and take up more space, resulting in density gets lower. . (MORE)
The Sun is a star. The Sun is a yellow dwarf, one of the most common types of stars. It is 5000 o C at the surface, but he inside is about 15,000,000 degrees. The Sun was formed when a cloud of dust and gas released from a supernova began to clump in the middle. It clumped so hard that the friction… from the clumping began to generate enough heat for the fusion of hydrogen to occur. Energy in the sun is produced by nuclear fusion. Fusion is the process of joining two nuclei together which, in the sun's place, is hydrogen nuclei, thus creating intense heat that turns the hydrogen gas to plasma, a state of matter where electrons are ripped off atoms. The hydrogen is the "fuel" of the sun, and if the sun runs out of hydrogen it will die in an explosive process known as a fusion flash. The waste product of the of hydrogen nuclei is helium, and it's building up in the sun until it dies. The leftover cloud of dust and gas began to form planets. At first, there were planetesimals. Then they joined together to form planets. The Asteroid Belt was formed because gravity from Jupiter prevented them from clumping together. The Sun almost became a binary star system with Jupiter, but Jupiter was a little too small to become a star. The Sun is now 50/50 in proportion to the hydrogen and helium, and is now about 4 billion years old. It will live for another 4 billion years. (MORE)
I'm not sure what you mean. The sun is the giant ball of fire in the sky. There ya go.
first of all the is here to keep you warm or you would freeze to death and second of all the sun gives you 70% of life
A Sun used to have a simple meaning as the star at the centre of our Solar System. However, in recent times, it has also come to mean any star that has planetary objects orbiting it. In simplistic terms, a Sun is really just a star. Our Sun is a star.
Density is the measurement of a material which is weighed relative to its volume, it is measured as kg/m3, Aniq khan
Here's a pretty good picture showing the approximate position iof the sun in our galaxy.http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2006/w3/milkyway_ill.jpgIt's in a place called the galactic habital zone. Close enough to the center of the galaxy to have heavier elements for making rocky planets but not too cl…ose as to be in danger from outbursts of radiation, passing stars, asteriods, comets, etc. (MORE)
Yes, it does. The core is much denser and hotter than, say, the chromosphere or the photosphere. A link is provided below
If there were no Sun to give the Earth its energy all livingthings on the Earth - that is all plants and animals, includinghuman beings - could never have appeared. If the Sun suddenlydisappeared now, all plants and animals - including human beings -would die. . +++ . More fundamentally, without t…he Sun there would be no planets,as their formation depended on a star around which their materialcould accrete. (MORE)
The sun converts hydrogen into helium via nuclear fusion, liberating energy in the process. The sun, our local star, is the life source for earth. If the sun died, so would life on earth. (A few of the simplest organisms might stay alive in permanent ice.) Radiant energy from this nuclear fusion …reactor warms earth, drives weather and climate, and keeps us from the deepest freeze you could possibly imagine. A link can be found below Without sun light, plants would not be able to complete photosynthesis! They would die, followed by pretty much everything else. the sun warm up the planets! :) (MORE)
last time i heard it gave light but it cant be that simple if you are asking that question
We have a sun because it gives out energy so we acn grow flowers and let things photosynthesie.. If we had no sun the world would be COLD and boring!
\nThere would be no life as we know it.\n. \nThere are only a few newly discovered life forms on earth that are not dependent on the sun for survival.\n. \nEx. there are some organisms that live by under water volcano vents at the bottom of the ocean that do not in some way feed on things produced… by the photosynthesis (plants using sun light to transform nutrients into plant life) (MORE)
The sun heats up the planet on were live which is earth to keep us warm
Jupiters density is around 1.33 g/cc on average, less dense than Earth and the other inner planets, but much more massive overall. Diameter of Jupiter (at the equator) is around 88,847 miles (compared to 7926 miles for the earth). Jupiters circumference at the equator is around 449,202 miles (compa…red with 40,075 miles for the earth). Jupiters volume is 1321 times that of Earths. (MORE)
it is the proportion between the mass and the volume of an object, you can calculate it with this formula: M(mass) / V(volume)
Sun is just a ball fulled with energy one day energy will run out than no sun! Get it it's so easy!
Density is the mass per unit of volume. MASS: the amount of matter in an object. MATTER: Anything that has mass and takes up space. VOLUME: The amount of space anything occupies.
density is the things that sink and float in water or in any other liquid
We all have to have a sun with out the sun we will be frozen solid the sun warms us up with its heat if we don't have heat we will freeze to death

There are two ways of comparing size: Mass, and volume. (Mass is the product of volume and density). Our sun is about average, perhaps a little above. It is expected there are lots of small red dwarf stars, which begin fusing hydrogen up around 15 Jovian masses. Since our sun out masses Jupiter b…y a factor of several thousand, the smallest stellar mass would approximately be one hundredth the mass of our sun. Note: there may be special circumstances a sun could be even smaller--see the link below. As for diameter, white dwarf stars could have diameters of 7000 miles--that is even smaller than our earth (8000 miles). Neutron stars are even smaller yet, with diameters up to one half mile, yet with roughly the mass of our own sun. The biggest stars can have masses hundreds of times that of our sun, and correspondingly large diameters. larger in diameter, more dense, average in mass (MORE)
The sun is the central component of our solar system that functions as its gravitational center and primary radiant energy source.
The Sun is very..... sunlike. It is huge, immensely hot, and gives off light and radiation enough to give us sunburns from 93 million miles away.
There are rarely answers to "why" questions about the existence of physical objects. The Sun exists because hydrogen obeys the laws of universal gravitation, the electromagnetic force, and the strong and weak nuclear forces. When enough hydrogen accumulates, it collapses to become a star. Our Sun… is a pretty ordinary star, formed over 5 billion years following natural laws that probably exist throughout the universe.

Nothing living. But there is gas, solar flares, and basically HOTNESS! Solar Flares can cause devices (Such as Cellphones, Computers, etc.) to act weirdly, very weirdly.

The rule of thumb is that the closer the planet the less dense it is, this is a clue to the formation of the solar system, which originated from a gas nebula that was denser in the center.
The corona is much hotter than the photosphere, yet we have to waitfor a total solar eclipse to see the corona. Why is that?
The sun's diameter is about 865,374 miles. Its density is1.622Ã?105 kg/m3 and its mass is (1.98855ÃÂ±0.00025)Ã?1030 kg whichis 333,000 times that of Earth.
They don't.. In our own solar system this is at best only approximately true. Each of the four inner planets is more dense than any of the four outer planets, but comparing the planets in order from the sun outward, the relationship between them goes: . Merury is more dense than . Venus , which… is less dense than . Earth , which is more dense than . Mars , which is more dense than . Jupiter , which is more dense than . Saturn , which is less dense than . Uranus , which is less dense than . Neptune . . So, of the possible ways to choose neighboring planets, the inner one is more dense than the outer one in only 4 of 7 cases. Statistically this is no different from what would be expected had they been chosen entirely at random. It was believed until fairly recently that the inner/outer planet division happened because planets near a star (relatively speaking) would be too hot to retain much gas, so inner planets would be terrestrial (high density) and outer planets would be gas giants (low density). The discovery that "Hot Jupiters" not only exist but seem to be fairly common has cast doubt on previous notions, and it's possible that it will turn out that the way our own solar system is arranged is simply a coincidence.

The innermost layer or core of the Sun has the highest density. Itis said to be ten times that of lead and 150 times the density ofwater.
\nNo. The average density of the Sun (or any object, for that matter) is found by dividing its mass by its volume. When we do this, we find that the Sun's density is 1.41 grams per cubic centimeter (only 41% denser than water). Iron has a density of 7.874 grams per cubic centimeter. So iron is o…ver five times denser than the Sun. It's important to understand, however, that 1.41 grams per cubic centimeter is only the AVERAGE density of the Sun. Its core is much denser than that, while its outer layers are much less dense. (MORE)
the sun is the center of gravity in our solar system and it is a medium sized star that is 5 billion years old and the sun gives us light, heat, energy and life
Describe in general the structure and interior density pressure and temperature conditions of an average star such as the Sun?
The interior of an average star is modeled after the theoretical pressure, temperature, and density conditions that would be necessary to produce the observed energy and light from the surface. The interior can be described as (1) the core, (2) a radiation zone, and (3) the convection zone. The core… is a dense and very hot region where the density fo the core is about 12 times that of solid lead. The radiation zone is less dense and energy in the form of gamma and x rays from the core is absorbed and reemitted by collisions with atoms in this zone. The convection zone begins about seven-tenths of the way to the surface, where the density of the gases is about 1% of the density of water. Gases at the bottom of this zone are heated by radiation from the radiation zone below, expand from heating, and rise to the surface by convection. (MORE)
The sun is mainly composed of hydrogen and helium heated to extremetemperatures by nuclear fusion.
Density is the measure of pounds per square inch it would be important if you designed tanks because you would need to know what density of the tanks armor it would need to be same as in a submarine.
the proves our heat light day and night, mornings and evenings. and more stuff everyone and everything needs to live on our plant, Earth.
Are comets located beyond the asteroid belt 3 AU from the sun have extremely large masses and very low density?
Comets are fairly small bodies of rock and ice which are in a highly eccentric orbit around the sun. The actual nucleus of a comet can be between a few hundred metres across, to 40 or more km in diameter. Their mass is quite low, but their density is also quite low as they are mostly made of water i…ce and frozen gases. They spend most of their time slowly orbiting the sun, far out beyond the outer planets (and way beyond the asteroid belt). Their orbit eventually brings them close to the sun, where the surface is heated and gives the comet its tails. (MORE)
No. Neutron stars are far MORE DENSE than the Sun's core. If the Sun were twice its actual mass, and if it were to collapse into a ball around 10 miles in diameter, THEN it would be as dense as a neutron star. Compared to a neutron star, the Sun is like a mist of hydrogen, a sort of fog.
we have to have the sun because if we don't we'd have no light and we wouldn't have heat so we'll freeze to death
Very generally, the outer four planets are less dense than the four inner rocky planets, but it's more to do with planet type rather than their distance from the sun.
Do the densities of the Galilean moons increase with distance from Jupiter just as the densities of the planets increase with distance from the Sun?
To answer the question very literally: Yes. The Galilean satellites follow the same pattern of density versus increasing distance from Jupiter that the planets' density follows versus distance from the sun. The specific pattern is: No pattern at all. Earth ... 3 rd from the sun ... is the… most dense planet, while Saturn ... 6 th planet from the sun ... is the least dense. So there is no "just as" to compare to. (MORE)
the sun might become a black hole and suck up all the planets in our solersystem. (FYI no mater what, the world will tern dark forever)
no you can not go to the sun , the sun is too hot if you try you would die.
Due to the pressure of the outward layers, it has a greater density at the center; less density outside.
The sun, along with the rest of the solar system, condensed out of a large interstellar dust cloud. The cloud was the result of many earlier events in the history of the universe, including the Big Bang, supernovae, and the expansion and cooling of the universe as a whole.
Density can be thought of as how compacted something is. Density is calculated by mass divided by volume.
If there was no Sun, we would never have Daytime. It would beconstantly dark, with the exception of streetlights.
Density is the amount of mass that can fit into a given volumewithin an object or substance.
Density is "weight per unit volume" and, among other things, it tells you if something can float.
