Astronomy 102 Autumn 2008 Professor Eric Agol Review sheet for final exam Bring a scantron calculator amp pencil You must turn in both the exam packet amp scantron to receive credit for the exam Bring your student ID number No notes or books allowed in the exam The following questions are primarily from the second half of the course so please review the midterm review sheet as well Why do white dwarfs have a maximum mass How do white dwarfs reach the maximum mass Why do white dwarfs explode in supernovas What do supernovas look like How do stars that are born massive become supernovas What kind of star is left behind after a massive star supernova and why Why do neutron stars rotate rapidly What are pulsars What is a black hole and how can they form What are 3 characteristics of black holes Why would you stretch if you jumped into a black hole Why do black holes often emit X rays How do astronomers distinguish between neutron stars and black holes in binary star systems Why is light emitted near a black hole redshifted What is evidence for black holes Why is the classification of galaxies important to astronomy What are the principal stellar components of galaxies How do spiral arms transform gas into stars What are spiral elliptical amp lenticular galaxies What is the Hubble sequence and how do the properties of galaxies vary along it What determines the colors of galaxies What are the typical motions of matter within galaxies What are dwarf galaxies How can we measure the motions of stars and gas within galaxies What is a rotation curve What is the evidence for dark matter in galaxies What is the make up of the Universe What is the evidence for dark matter in galaxy clusters What is dark matter What is the Cold Dark Matter model Why is dark matter important for galaxies to form Why are galaxy interactions important Why are distances important to astronomy What are the steps in the cosmic distance ladder What are the major methods of finding distances to nearby stars amp galaxies why do they work and over what range can we use them What is a Hubble diagram How do astronomers map the Universe What is a peculiar velocity What is the Sloan Digital Sky Survey What does the large scale structure of the Universe look like What causes the Hubble Law What is the Cosmological Principle What causes the cosmological redshift How does redshift relate to the size of the Universe Why does the expansion of the Universe indicate it had a beginning How can we estimate the age of the Universe using the Hubble constant and what age does this imply Were galaxies always moving apart at the same rate What is the evidence for the Big Bang What are the different eras of the Universe Where does matter in the Universe come from What is anti matter and why is it important in the early Universe Where do atomic nuclei come from Where do atoms in the Universe come from What is the Cosmic Microwave Background and how is it produced How does density change the curvature of the Universe What produces hot amp cold spots in the CMB What is the 3 pronged evidence for dark energy Why does the age of the Universe require dark energy Why do distant white dwarf supernovae require dark energy to explain their brightnesses Why is the Universe so flat Why is the CMB so uniform What are quasars How are quasars powered How do black holes relate to galaxies What is the evidence for a black hole at the center of the Milky Way Can we see the shadow of black hole Equations to be familiar with in addition to midterm equations know what symbols mean know the units R5262M czcANv Hod c Vzrofa on Mltrrx7 lt G j
