Parts 1-2 Writing/Developing/Calculating a Formula

Part 1: Writing/Developing a Formula
How many feet are in a mile? 5280 ft. How would you convert 15 ft to miles? How Would you represent h feet in miles? A. Use the Pythagorean Theorem to write an equation relating r, d, & h. B. Solve for d. C. In the equation found in part b, replace the h with the answer from #3.

Part 2: Calculating the Formula
Explain why the formula found in Part 1c in approximately equivalent to It is approximately equivalent because if you would to plug in something for h to the original equation found in Part 1: 4c , the number would be too small to take into consideration.

Mars mi Jupiter mi Saturn mi Uranus mi Neptune mi Pluto* mi

PARTS 4 Using the Formula

Using the formula and the radius of the Earth in Part 3, determine how far you can see on a clear day. (Hint: Plug in your height for h) Solve the formula for h. Using the formula from #2 and radii found in Part 3, determine how tall a person would have to be on Saturn to see 7 mi to the horizon.

4. Using the formula from #2 and radii found in Part 3, determine how tall a person would have to be on Saturn to see 7 mi to the horizon. 5. Could a person possible see 7 mi to the horizon on Saturn? Why or why not? No, because there is no person that is that tall. 6. Could a person possibly see 7 mi to the horizon on Saturn? Why or why not? No, because people can not live there

Parts 5-6 Graphing Formulas & Visual Display

Mars has the largest canyon in the solar system. It has the largest volcano in the solar system (Olympus Mons), which covers an area about the size of Arizona. About every two years the Earth and Mars come close together. The planet has two moons, Deimos and Phobos. Mars was named by the Romans for their god of war because of its red, bloodlike color.

Mars Using the formula :
I found the distance in miles by plugging in my height, and the planet’s (Mars) radius. Which translates to : ft.

Distance from Sun     Approximately 466 million miles

Uranus =4.847 Facts: 4.847miles = 25592.16 feet :D =13.2446
Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun. Uranus is a giant gas planets which is made up of mostly rock and various ices. Uranus has been visited by only one spacecraft, Voyager 2 on Jan Uranus spins differently from most planets. It seems to be tilted "sideways" instead of right-side up. At the time of Voyager 2’ passage, Uranus' south pole was pointed almost directly at the Sun. Uranus has 15 known moons. Voyager 2 discovered 10 small moons in addition to the 5 large ones already known. It is likely that there are many more tiny moons within the rings. = feet :D =

Neptune I choose a Neptune, a planet. It is an eighth planet in the solar system. With my height and the formula given I found that visible distance is ft in order to see my chosen Planet, Neptune.
