People in Canada do not want solar heated homes.
Solar heated homes are expensive.
People in Canada do not understand solar cells.
6.) How do solar flares and sunspots affect the earth?
They disrupt radio communications and magnetic compasses.
They may affect weather patterns.
both 1 and 2
neither 1 or 2
7.) Why do sunspots appear as darker spots on the surface of the sun?
They are cooler than the surrounding areas.
They are hotter than the surrounding areas.
They are made up of different substances than the surrounding areas.
They weigh less than the surrounding areas.
8.) Explain the existence of the magnetosphere.
Charged particles from the sun that reach Earth are trapped by the magnetic field of the earth and spiral back and forth between the poles of the Earth.
Charged particles form a belt of radiation.
both 1 and 2
neither 1 or 2
9.) Which of the following accurately describes sunspots?
They can accurately predict the stock market.
They are storms of swirling electrically charged gases on the surface of the sun.
They are permanent.
They have no effect on the earth.
10.) Which of the following statements correctly describes sunspots and solar flares?
Both are storms resulting from magnetic and electrically-charged particle activity.
Flares go above sun’s surface, whereas sunspots are primarily on the sun’s surface.
Flares are outbursts of shorter duration, and send out UV light and X-rays.
all of the above
