The Sun

The Sun

A star that is very close

To Earth

Slide 4

This is not a new concept

This is not a new concept

The suns energy has been used for centuries to:

Dry clothes

Dry meats

Plants use solar energy to make food through a process called photosynthesis

Therefore, fossil fuels are solar energy stored for billions of years

The Birth of Solar Energy: The Core

The Birth of Solar Energy: The Core

Solar energy is made in the core

T = 15.6 million degrees Celsius

156,000 times boiling water

P = 250 million atmospheres

250 million times the pressure at Earths surface

It is a product of nuclear fusion

The energy travels through the suns layers, solar system, and eventually reaches Earth

Slide 7

Nuclear Fusion

Nuclear Fusion

A special chemical reaction

Simply, when two atomic nucleii are joined to form a larger nucleus,

Energy is given off or absorbed

Hydrogen is fused to form Helium in the sun

Slide 8

Atoms!

Atoms!

Everything is made up of atoms

Your desk

Your body

Air

Water

They are the building block of the universe.

Different substances are made of different atoms. These are called chemicals.

Slide 9

Examples of atoms

Examples of atoms

Hydrogen (part of water)

Oxygen (what we breathe and the other part of water)

Helium (what makes balloons float)

Sulfur (what makes some water stink)

Sodium and Chloride (these two make up table salt)
