Finding the Size of the Sun and Moon

Worth 20 points -- Due Monday, June 3rd 2002

This is a fun lab in which you will use the concept of similar triangles and a pinhole in a piece of paper to determine the Size of the Sun and Moon. I have a worksheet for this lab, and if you wish to do it ask me in an email or in class and I will give you a photocopy of the worksheet.
