A parallax can be used to measure what?
a paralax can be used to measure the relation of the distance between one star to another.such as, when you take a picture of a star, and another of that same star six months later, with the paralax you can see how far they moved. ...
Asked in Planetary Science
Why do planets seem to change direction or move backward as you view them from Earth?
The view of planets is caused by paralax.

What process is used in 3D TV?
A paralax barrier is used on 3d TVs to make them so you don't need to use glasses. It controls the way the light leaves the display. You can read about it at http://www.notascoolasitseems.com/review/how-does-3d-work-and-without-glasses ...

Asked in Astronomy
What units are used to calculate the distances between objects within the universe?
There are many units used based on the scale you need. For distances inside the solar system we use the astronomical unit (AU) which is the average Earth-Sun distance. For outside the universe we use light year (ly) which is the distance traveled by light in a vacuum over a year. Another one is the parsec (pc). An object 1 parsec away would product a PARalax of 1 arcSEC. ...

Asked in Astronomy
How is parallax used to determine a star?
Well it's pretty simple, you know what a parallax is, as you experience it all the time. Like your in the car, and your moving... you can see the stationary objects closer to you seem to be moving faster than the objects further away. The apparent change in position is the parallax, and it is measured in the terms of "The angle of parallax", the greater the angle, the closer the object is. So in terms of nearby stars, it is used...
Why is the theoretical value differ from the experimental value that you obtained from the voltage?
Your question is lacking in enough detail to give you a precise answer. However, it is not unusual in any experiment to get different experimental values depending on the controls you place on the experiment. For example, using Ohm's Law the Voltage is Current x Resistance. Say you have a simple DC circuit with a 100 ohm resistor across a 10 Volt supply. Theory tell us that the current is equal to one-tenth amp (.1A). However, when you measure the current with...
What are the differences of a digital and a SLR camera?
A digital camera captures images through electronic sensors called "pixels", which each are sensitive to light. Put enough pixels together, stand back and it looks like a picture. Electronic images are then stored as data on electronic media such as disks or flash memory; a digital camera refers only to the way the image is captured and stored. On the contrary, a non-digital or film camera uses a roll of light-sensitive film contained within the camera to capture an image. "SLR" stands...
