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.
PARTS 3 Researching Planet Radii
Planet Radii PlanetRadius Mercury mi Venus mi Earth mi Mars mi Jupiter mi Saturn mi Uranus mi Neptune mi Pluto* mi
PARTS 4 Using the Formula
1.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) 2.Solve the formula for h. 3.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
Interesting Facts about Mars….
Mars: Formula & Graph
Jupiter #5 Distance from Sun Approximately 466 million miles Number of Moons 62 moons have been identified Ganymede is the largest moon -- it is bigger than both Mercury and Pluto Diameter 85,788 miles the largest planet -- more than 12 Earths could line up across it! scientists use the planet's gravity to accelerate spacecraft so they can reach Saturn, Uranus and Neptune Composition a giant ball of mostly hydrogen and helium Length of Day 9 hours, 55 minutes in Earth time (the length of one rotation) Length of a Year 12 Earth years (the length of one orbit around the sun) Name named for the king of the Roman gods. Visited by Pioneer 11, Viking, Galileo, Cassini and others Part 5 & 6:
Jupiters FORMULA & GRAPH
= miles = feet :D Facts: 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. =
