How does the sun affect the earth's magnetic field?
The sun produces energetic and charged particles and blasts them in all directions (solar winds). These charged particles can get trapped when they are near the earth's magnetic field. With the grace of this magnetic field, we are all shielded from being irreversible harmed. See the picture in the related link for a visualization of how the magnetic field gets distorted by solar winds.
The sun and earths magnetic field.
The earths atmosphere and the earths magnetic field.
No, the gravitational field keeps us in orbit around the sun. The earths magnetic field provides us with some protection from charged particles from the sun.
The sun ejects significant quantities of charged particles. These interact via the electromagnetic force with the magnetic field of the earth.
If there is any effect at all, it would need to be a very tiny one. The only way that the Earth's rotation might affect the Sun would be in the way the Earth's rotation generates Earth's magnetic field. Our magnetic field affects the way that coronal mass ejections, huge bubbles of ionized gas from the Sun, behave when they get close. But the Sun has a magnetic field of its own, much stronger than… Read More
The Northern and Southern lights, respectively.
I am not sure what you mean by widening. The Earth's magnetic field is a result of the fact that the Earth has a molten Iron core and the planet is rotating quite rapidly. The strength of the magnetic field in these circumstances is dependent on the speed of rotation. As the Earths rotational speed is slowing (due to the friction of the tides caused by the moon) the Earth's magnetic field is gradually weakening… Read More
Among other things, a lack of a magnetic field would expose us to deadly solar winds.
Earth's magnet field shields humans from dangerous radiation form the sun and protects the earth's atmosphere form the solar wind. Without the magnetic field, there would be no human life on earth.
They protect us from external dangers. Ozone protects us from UV rays of the sun.
Aurora Borealis, Such a beautifull girl. She comes from the sun and is both attracted and repelled by the earths magnetic field. Aurora Australis is the same thing, only from the South Pole. The Earth is constantly immersed in the solar wind, a rarefied flow of hot plasma (gas of free electrons and positive ions) Solar flares and magnetic storms on the sun sends out a huge amount of radiation from the sun. this radiation… Read More
There is speculation that the earths magnetic orientation will shift soon based on previous history, however no one today knows the answer. Sometime in the future your compass will read south when it is pointing north. This will affect the earths magnetic field, when it occurs. The Mayans never said that the earth would end, however they seemed to be a very advanced culture and when they made their calendar, they ended it on the… Read More
Yes. by a few cm every year. The moons gravity effect on the earth is slowing the earths rotation, which in turn is weakining the earths magnetic field, which is keeping the moon in orbit. Eventually if nothing crashes into the earth, and if the sun doesnt explode, then the moon will escape the magnetic field of the earth and find its own orbit around the sun, however this orbit would not be as circular… Read More
Not quite but they would affect the auroras. The physical, light-emitting reaction is that between charged particles from the Sun and the field.
The sun does not have 'so many magnetic fields.' It has 1 magnetic field that varies according to the distance from the sun.
The Suns' magnetic field is only stronger than Jupiters at Sun Spots, the rest of the field is weaker than Jupiters
Different latitudes of the sun rotate at different speeds. This tends to twist and bend the magnetic field lines.
1. Stops the atmoshpear being stripped away. 2. Drags charged particles from the sun to the earths poles eg. displays aroura
it wil cancel the magnetic field whch will cause radiation from the sun to penitrate and kill off life on earth
The sun is hot
no, only our earth has the magnectic energy The Sun has a very strong magnetic field.
Probably very little would change if you either doubled the magnetic field strength, reversed it, or made it zero. If you reversed it, the larger hole might form over the north pole. UV-C from the Sun makes ozone in the ozone layer, most solar wind (the stuff affected by our magnetic field) does not survive to reach the ozone layer. The poles might retain a bit more ozone into the late spring, with a nearly… Read More
The Sun does have an intense and constantly changing magnetic field; we can see it in action in every solar flare or prominence.
The sun has a magnetic field that gets twisted around inside the sun as it spins. There are places on the sun where this magnetic field rises up from below the sun's surface and pokes through, creating sunspots.Sunspots are magnetic and often have a north and south pole like a magnet. hope this helps!
The Earth is protected from the sun's charged particles by its magnetic field. The Earths magnetic field is generated within its molten iron core. Other examples of planets with magnetic fields include: Mercury, Jupiter, Ganymede (Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system) , Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.Mercury has a relitivley weak magnetic field. It is so weak that the suns charged particles can reach the surface of Mercury. +++ Also the atmosphere.
It is formed because of the magnetic field of earth. As charged particles from the sun collide with our magnetic field it makes light.
no mars magnetic field is not strong because it is far away from the sun than earth.
areas of the sun where the magnetic field is increased.
The sun would destroy the earth's atmosphere without the magnetic field.
The aurora australis, also known as the southern lights, are not something that can crash. They are lights in the sky caused by interactions of Earths magnetic field, charged particles from the sun, and the upper atmosphere.
The magnetic field of the Earth.
The Earth's magnetic field is principally the result of electric currents generated in the mantle by its heat causing movement of this mass. A minor perturbation of this may be caused by currents derived from the Solar Wind - the flow of charged particles from the Sun. And of course the residual magnetization of local rocks will also have some effect.
If the earth's magnetic field fails, then the magnetic compass won't work. There are also some animals that are sensitive to the magnetic field of the earth, and if it is no longer present, their behavior will probably change in some way. The main problem with the "failure" of the earth's magnetic field would be that the protection it provides from the solar wind will no longer be there. That means streams of charged particles… Read More
Because the charged particles in the solar wind streaming from the sun are attracted to the magnetic poles.
convection currents in the outer core (which is in liquid form) move the molten metal of the outer core around to create the magnetic field. The magnetic field then blocks certain rays from the sun.
Magnetic field that periodically reverses.
Planets and stars, aside from our sun, do not affect our weather.
"bright lights from the solar wind trapped in the earths magnetic feild", so in contrast they make a bright glow, hence the northern/southern lights!! The prominences and solar flares on the sun could disrupt our magnetic field and cause the north and south lights. They are beautiful.
The Sun constantly emits charged particles moving at high speed. This radiation doesn't affect us (much) here on the surface of Earth, though, because the Earth's magnetic field acts as a sort of "shield" that slows and deflects these particles. Without the magnetic field, a lot more cosmic rays would reach the surface, and the mutation and cancer rates would skyrocket.
The magnetosphere is caused by a magnetic field generally accepted to be generated by the rotation of electrically conductive liquid material (probably iron rich) at or around the centre of the earth. This magnetic field extends beyond the surface of the earth into space and has a profound effect on the charged particals streaming in from the sun. These particles have an electronic charge because they are ions. When they interact with the magnetic field… Read More
The Sun sends photons of light particles and they get deflected by Earth's atmosphere
Mostly distance, our magnetic field, and our atmosphere.
about 10 times the size of the sun
the sun and the Earth's magnetic field create the magnetosphere.
It's gimongously huge magnetic field.
The earth's magnetic field has shifted or flipped on occasion. These events are recorded in lava formations and are well documented. The earth's magnetic field is currently weakening at a rather brisk rate, but there is more to this than meets the eye. Although not commonly accepted, the earth, sun, solar system and the entire universe are easily defined as electrical in nature. We won't really understand what's happening here until we fully understand that… Read More
The Sun is 4.5 billion years old and as everything has a magnetic field it stands to reason that it also is 4.5 billion years old.
one of the definite reason is that it is very close to the sun the sun has an irregular magnetic field which is very complex. this irregular magnetic field also effects Mercuries orbit as it has ans iron core.
