based on the fact that the nucleons move almost freely inside the nucleus due to the Pauli principle Since two of them cannot occupy the same energy state they do not scatter as all possible nal states that could scattered to are already occupied by other nucleons But when a nucleon approaches he surface and tries to y offthe nucleus it suffers an attractive force by the nucleons that are left behind forcing it to return toward the interior Inside the nucleus it feels the attraction forces of all the nucleons that are around it resulting in a net force approximately equal to zero We can imagine the nucleus as a balloon inside of which the nucleons more freely but occupying states of different energy gure 55 The nucleons in the Fermi gas model obey the Schrodinger equation fora

complicated solar regions it is still not clear how exactly these layers are heated some fractionationmigration effects for example FlP species with low first ionization potential are enhanced with respect to photosphere possibly because of fractionation between ions and neutral atoms Therefore abundances less accurate But there are elements that cannot be observed in the photosphere for example helium is only seen in emission lines this is how Helium was discovered by Sir Joseph Lockyer of England in 20 October 1868 Solar Chromosphere red from Hot emission lines Meteorites can provide accurate information on elemental abundances In the tiresola r nebula More precise than solar spectra if data are available Butsame gases escape and cannot be determined this way for example hydrogen or noble gases Not all meteorites are suitable most ofthem are fractionated and do not provide representative solar abundance information One needs primitive meteorites that underwent little

Chondrules small 1mm size shperical inclusions in matrix believed to have formed very early in the presolar nebula accreted together and remained largely unchanged since then Carbonaceous Chondrites

ion of the parent body They formed when various types of dust and small grains that were present in the early solar system accreted to form primitive asteroids Prominent among the components present in chondrites are the enigmatic chondrules millimetersized objects that originated as freely oating molten or partially molten droplets in space most chondrules are rich in the silicate minerals olivine and pyroxene Chondrites also contain refractory inclusions including CaAl Inclusions which are among the oldest objects to fOrm in the solar system particles rich in metallic FeNi and sul des and isolated grains of silicate minerals The remainder of chondrites consists of negrained micrometersized or smaller dust which may either be present as the matriX of the rock or may form rims or mantles around individual chondrules and refractory inclusions Embedded in this dust are presolar grains which predate the formation of our solar system and originated elsewhere in the galaxy Most meteorites that are recovered on Earth are chondrites 86 of witnessed falls are chondrites as is the overwhelming majority of meteorites that are found There are currently over 27000 chondrites in the world39s collections The largest individual stone ever recovered weighing 1770 kg was part of the Jilin meteorite shower of 1976 Chondrite falls range from single stones to extraordinary showers consisting of thousands of individual stones as occurred in the Holbrook fall of 1912 where an estimated 14000 stones rained down on northern Arizona From Wikz gedia the ee encyclopedia achOndr39ite is a stony meteorite that is made of material similar to terrestrial basalts or plutonic rocks Compared to the chondrites they have all been differentiated and reprocessed to a lesser or greater degree due to melting and recrystallization on or within meteorite parent bodies As a result achondrites have distinct textures and mineralogies indicative of igneous processes Achondrites account for about 8 of meteorites overall and the majority about two thirds of them are HED meteorites originating from the crust of asteroid 4 Vesta Other types include Martian Lunar and several types thought to originate from other asyet unidenti ed asteroids These groups have been determined on the basis of e g the FeMn chemical ratio and the 170180 oxygen isotope ratios thought to be characteristic quot
