ESPS Dylan Horvath

This is a tool that will allow me to study for the ESPS first semester FINALS

Nebula A giant cloud of gas and dust floating through space
Neutron Star a dense core of a star that had its protons and electrons turned into neutrons.
Black Hole A place where the gravity is so strong that nothing can escape
Super Nova A giant explosion on the surface of a star that causes it to lose most of its mass.
Protostar the first formation of a star
White Dwarf A small very dense star that is about the size of a planet
Red Giant A large star that has high luminosity and low surface temperature.
How old is the Universe? 13.8 billion years old.
What event began the universe? The Big Bang
What are the visible forms of light? Radio waves, infrared radiation,
What is a light year? The distance light travels in a year.
Explain Red Shift. how is blue shift different? when something is moving away from us the light is red shifted when objects are moving towards us the light is blue shifted
How is the universe moving and what shift of light do you see? The universe is expanding that means that it is shifted to the red.
On the EM Spectrum different colors happen because of what? Different colors happen because of waves on different frequencies.
How does temperature relate to density? The hotter something is the less dense it becomes, the colder something is the denser it becomes.
What are two ways you can increase gravity? Rotation and density of an abject
What are the CMB's and why are they important? The CMB is the leftover radiation that was created by the big bang. It is important because it helped create the universe to what it is today.
How does density relate to gravity? The more dense some thing is the more gravity will effect it.
What happens in the colder areas of the CMB? They end up collecting more matter and create structures like stars.
Stars and Galaxies in the universe start in what type of temperature, density and gravity regions?
Describe what the different colors in the CMB represent and how they are related to temperature and density. The different colors on the CMB represent the temperatures of it. This is related to temperature and density because the colder the area of the CMB the denser it will become.
