What is the hottest layer of the sun's atmosphere?
Hottest Layer of the Suns Atmospere.
The core is the hottest layer of the sun. Its temperature is
nearly 15 million degrees F.The reason that the core is the hottest
is due to the gravitational pressure.
This being said, there are individual spots in the corona of the
sun which from time to time is known to be hotter than the core.
The corona is an outer atmosphere of the sun (if you see a picture
of a solar eclipse, the corona is typically the edge of the sun not
covered by the earth).
The Corona I believe. You should check a diagram of the sun as well. The parts of the sun's atmosphere from the surface outward are the photosphere, the chromosphere, the corona, and the outer layers of the corona called the solar wind. The photosphere is the visible part of the Sun's atmosphere. The parts of the sun's atmosphere from the surface outward are the photosphere, the chromosphere, the corona, and the outer layers of the…
The coldest layer of the atmosphere is in the Mesosphere. This is because temperatures are decreasing as the Mesosphere extends upward above the Stratosphere. The air is thinner because the air particles are further apart. The next layer, known as the Thermosphere is the hottest layer. The reason why this layer is so hot, is because it contains fewer air molecules then the other layers, making the air very thin and easy to warm. The…
Venus is the hottest planet. Although it is only the second closest to the sun, its thick Carbon Dioxide atmosphere causes it to have a severe runaway greenhouse effect. Mercury is the closest planet to the sun, but it has no atmosphere therefore more of the suns light is reflected back out into space.
