1. The solar corona is much cooler than the Sun's surface, hence we must wait for a total  solar eclipse to glimpse it with the naked eye.  True  False 2. The outward pressure of hot gas in the Sun is balanced by the inward gravitational pressure. is increasing the Sun's diameter. weakens the magnetic field. is cooling the photosphere. is responsible for variations in the sunspot  cycle. 3. Sunspots are dark splotches on the Sun. Which statement is true? They are solid bodies floating on the surface of the Sun. They are hotter than the surrounding areas of the Sun. They are extremely cold objects, as cold as Pluto. They are extremely hot, but cooler than the surrounding areas of the  Sun. They are associated with areas of very low magnetic fields. 4. The solar winds blow outward from the entire  photosphere. coronal holes. sunspots. flares. the Sun's poles only. 5. What natural barrier usually prevents two protons from combining? the strong nuclear force the weak nuclear force dark energy gravity electromagnetic  repulsion 6. In the proton­proton cycle, the positron is a spin conservation particle. intermediate between the proton and neutron in  mass. the chief means energy reaches the photosphere. an anti­electron. massless. 7. The proton­proton cycle converts all of the mass of the four hydrogen atoms into pure  energy.  True  False 8. From inside out, which is in the correct order for the structure of the Sun? core, convective zone, radiative zone, granulation core, radiative zone, convective zone,  chromosphere core, convective zone, radiative zone core, photosphere, radiative zone, corona core, chromosphere, photosphere 9. The Sun's structure is uniform throughout its interior, with no evidence of different  layers.  True  False 10. Sunspots are always found close to the Sun's poles. were most numerous during the Maunder Minimum. come in pairs, representing the north and south magnetic  fields. travel over the surface of the Sun from pole to pole. are relatively constant in number every year. 11. The bright photosphere is much hotter than the faint corona.  True  False 12. What is the meaning of the solar constant? the fact that features on the Sun appear to never change the regularity of the 11 year sunspot cycle the stability of the Sun's luminosity for as long as life has existed on Earth the amount of energy the Earth receives per unit area and unit time the fact that the amount of hydrogen turning into helium in the core is  fixed 13. A loop of gas following the magnetic field lines between sunspots' poles is a ray. a prominence. a flare. a coronal mass  ejection. a coronal hole.
