Measuring the Speed of an Ejected Ball of Plasma
|*Level 2 tasks attempted but not completed or mastered.
*Students are able to identify the RHESSI images as solar flares.
*From the RHESSI images, Students are able to identify the coronal loop and the blob of plasma separating from it.
*Students, through successful completion of Worksheet 4.4, are able to predict the magnetic field lines of a solar flare.
*Students are able to identify the footprints of a coronal loop from Worksheet 4.5.
*Students are able to identify the solar flares marked by an “X” from Worksheet 4.5.
*Students are able to identify the circle marked on the images as the midpoint between the footprints from Worksheet 4.5.
*Students are able to determine the location of the brightest spot in the coronal x-ray source and draw cross hairs through that spot using a ruler and determine the coordinates from Worksheet 4.5.
*Students are able to determine the speed of the blob using at least 1 of 2 methods taught by the instructor.
*Students complete Worksheet 4.5 with at least 80-94% accuracy.
*Students complete Worksheet 4.5 with at least 95% accuracy and above.
*Students, through successfully completion of Worksheet 4.6, demonstrate that they can determine the kinetic energy of a blob that has that has been ejected by a solar flare.
*Students fully demonstrate the ability to calculate the speed and kinetic energy of a blob that has been ejected by a solar flare.
