How does a ball get pumped up by the sun if it is left outside?
If a soccer ball that is otherwise able to hold its pressure fairly well is heated by the sun, it will, indeed, increase its pressure. Thermal energy is transferred to the air (which is already compressed) inside the ball, and it causes the gas atoms and molecules to increase their thermal energy. This thermal energy causes increased vibration and increased "bouncing around" among the heated gas particles. The increased kinetic energy added to the air by the heat of the sun has increased the pressure in the ball.
You use a ball, (transparent) and leave it outside in the sun. This ball will start to heat but, not boil. Then, you will See some red lines in your ball. Leave the ball where it is. Get some candy. Try to cut a hole on top of the ball but, don't bust it! That part is crucially important! Get a plastic tube and place it in the hole. Get your candy and put it…
Newton's 1st law of motion states that a moving object will go in a straight line unless an outside force changes this motion What outside force prevents the planets from moving in a straight line in?
It's not that there is some force keeping the planets from falling into the sun; the sun's gravity prevents the planets from travelling in a straight line out of the solar system. If you throw a ball in a straight line then it keeps going, but if you throw a ball on a rope tied to a pole then the rope pulls the ball toward the pole and keeps the ball moving in a circle.
The sun is actually a remnant of condensed hydrogen and helium left over from the explosion of an older star. The debris pulled itself together by its own gravity until it was a giant ball. At the centre of the ball, gravity was so strong that it pressed the hydrogen atoms together so close that a nuclear reaction started. The sun is a giant hydrogen bomb. It is not a direct result of the Big…
Ever since the earth formed and the sun burst into light, the sun's light, which is created from nuclear fusion on our local star, has warmed the earth from the outside. Sunlight is directly responsible for the continuation of life on earth. If the sun suddenly went dark, most life on earth would die, and the rest would freeze solid in a ball of ice.
