Problem 1.3.63

The nearest neutron star (a collapsed star made primarily of neutrons) is about 3.00 3 1018 m away from Earth. Given that the Milky Way galaxy (Fig. P1.63) is roughly a disk of diameter , 1021 m and thickness , 1019 m, estimate the number of neutron stars in the Milky Way to the nearest order of magnitude.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Physics 213 // Week 3 Notes PSU Spring Term, 2017 _______ = Formula Chapter 34 Notes Q: What is an image (relating to images of physics) A: An image is a reproduction of an object via light. Q: How can we relate the object’s distance to a mirror and the reflected image A: = −  (plane mirror formula) i = image distance (meters) p = distance from object to mirror (meters) Q: How can you tell if an image is virtual A: If ‘i’ is negative (-i) then the image is virtual. If ‘i’ is positive (+i) then the image is real. Q: Can a convex mirror form a real image A: No! Convex mirrors can only form virtual images. Q: Can a concave mirror form a real image A: Y
