This is part second of “Comets”. Here, we will discuss technical part in the case of asteroid. Click here to see the first part
To find the type of its orbit, we need to know the value of eccentricity. There are many ways to find it. But, as per the information I have, the following formula will be the easiest.
An elementary definition of a comet says- “a comet is a celestial object consisting of a nucleus of ice and dust and, when near the sun, a ‘tail’ of gas and dust particles pointing away from the sun.” But, astronomers are explorers. Though one of these bodies was the reason for the extinction of dinosaurs, studying it from a suitable distance is the most fascinating part. The far the merrier! What can the tail of a comet consist of? Patently, its composition will be the same as that of a comet. So, why does it run behind the comet and…
Before moving to the nuclear binding energy, the revision of nuclear forces is indispensable. Reason, the binding energy, by its name, poses the power to bind the nucleus together. The term nuclear brings an image of a small spherical ball with the storage of nucleons within itself and the term force is a well known scientist. So, the nuclear force, patently, the force acting on the nucleus. To be specific, the force is due to neutron (majorly). The protons and electrons are more inclined toward electrostatic force. However, the focus is the nuclear force seeing that it is attractive. …
Welcome to the summary series of the book- “Cosmic catastrophe”. Make sure that you have read the previous chapters too. This is the 5th chapter. White dwarfs are the most common corpuses in the Galaxy.
Note → This chapter explains the disks of matter, which surround the two binary stars. This summary continues the excretion disk, accretion disk, and science within them in more detail. Therefore, I request the respected readers to peruse the previous chapters before proceeding here(4^th chapter). Links are provided at the end of the story.
This is the summary of the 2nd chapter of the book ‘Cosmic Catastrophe’ by Craig Wheeler. This chapter is going to be in ‘point format’ so that the audience could grab the information easily and in less time.
This book, in its first chapter, gives a glance of the formation of stars, evolution of stars, reactions in the stars, and the alteration of one particle into another due to these reactions.
There are four fundamental forces in the universe, yet found.
