### When a star that is more than 40 times bigger than the sun dies what is it called?

It depends. With current theoretical knowledge, a star of this mass has two possible outcomes. 1) It erupts in a cataclysmic explosion as a supernova and then forms into a black hole or 2) If the mass is high enough, currently believed to be around 50 solar masses, it will form directly into a black hole without the supernova.

### What two events can upset the balance between gravity and pressure in a nebula?

Two events that can upset the balance between gravity and pressure in a nebula are a supernova explosion or the collision of two nebulae. A supernova explosion releases an enormous amount of energy and can disrupt the delicate equilibrium between gravity and pressure. The collision of two nebulae can also disturb the balance by introducing additional gravitational forces and increasing the overall pressure within the system.

### What happens when a white dwarf contracts and fusion begins?

When fusion ignites in a white dwarf there is, at first, no increase in volume to separate the fusing nuclei and the result is a runaway nuclear reaction ending in a massive explosion with two possible outcomes. For lower mass white dwarfs, the explosion will drive away the surrounding gasses, producing a nova. If, however, the addition of the gas pushes the white dwarf above 1.38 solar masses, the result will be a much more powerful explosion called a type Ia supernova, which will destroy the white dwarf.

### What is the minimum possible magnitude of two vectors?

The minimum possible magnitude that results from the combintion of two vectors is zero. That's what happens when the two vectors have equal magnitudes and opposite directions.The maximum possible magnitude that results from the combintion of two vectors is the sum of the two individual magnitudes. That's what happens when the two vectors have the same direction.

### Identify two possible results of interspecific competition?

the results maybe reduction in the number of either species or elimination from the competitors

### What are the two primary energy sources for the rock cycle?

The heat from the centre of the Earth (fueled by nuclear fission and therefore the energy of an ancient supernova explosion) which drives tectonic convection processes.The heat from the Sun which drives the erosion processes.

### What are two results of friction?

Two possible byproducts of friction include change in acceleration and release of heat.

### What happens when you mix two gases?

- a mixture of gases is obtained - at a given temperature and a given ratio gas1/gas2 an explosion is possible

### Why can't you see two stars collide?

Mostly, because stars are SO far apart! However, we have seen two stars that are so close together that one is stealing mass right off of the other star. If two stars were to actually collide, they would cause an explosion very much like a supernova.

### The results of division is?

One possible answer: In arithmetic, the result of dividing two numbers is called the quotient.

### What is the largest supernova?

SN 2006gy was the brightest and largest supernova ever discovered, scientists announced. The star was in the NGC 1260 galaxy, in the same direction as the constellation Perseus and may be a type of supernova previously predicted by theory but not observed. The conclusion was reached after extended observations of the supernova by both optical telescopes and X-ray telescopy. Currently, there are two possible explanations for the supernova's brightness, but both require the star in question to have been at least a hundred times as massive as the sun. Although the supernova is brighter than SN 1987A, which was bright enough to be seen by the naked eye, SN 2006gy is too far away to be seen by the naked eye.

### What according to your results is it possible to have a family of exactly three boys and three girls?

It is possible because it has happened. My father had two brothers and three sisters.
