Group T The Sun



The sun is by far the largest object in the solar system. The sun contains more than 99.8% of the solar system's mass.
The sun is about 70% hydrogen and about 28% helium. The sun's power is produced by nuclear fusion. Every second
700 000 000 tons of hydrogen are converted to 695 000 000 tons of helium. Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System and
is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earths of helium and 5 000 000 tons of energy in the form of
gamma rays. The outside layer of the sun is about 10,000 degrees fahrenheit (5,500 degrees celsius.)
The Sun was born about 4.6 billion years ago and many scientists believe that the Sun was created by a giant rotating cloud of gas.
The Sun is divided into 6 different layers: chromosphere, photosphere, subsurface flows, convection zone, radiative zone and the inner core. (Outer layer to inner layer)
