 map representation of an area or place elavation the height above sea level planetary system star and all of the planets moons and other material that orbit the star point of view a term used to describe the position from which an observation is made location place described in terms of other objects around them Circle all the words in the list below that identify a luminous source of light in our solar system a star the moon the sun Earth Venus Anasteroid a comet a star the sun which direction does earth rotate west to eastleft to rightcounterclock wise Calculate local noon if sunrise is at 7:10 am and sunset is at 6:42pm local noon is at 12:56 Explain how it can be 2pm in washignton d.c. on the east coast of the U.S. when it is 11am in seattle on the west coast of the U.S. The sun rises in the east coast first so it's morning there 3hours before its morning in the west coast this means there's a 3hour difference so 11am to 2pm is a 3hour difference If it is 1am on the east coast of the us what time is it on the west coast 10:00pm if it is 1am on the west coast of the us wjat time is it on the east coast 4am TorF craters are the round holes or circles you see on the surface of the moon if f explain correctly t t or f mare means ocean and is the name given to large bodies of water on the moon if f eplain correctly f mare means ocean and its the dark parts of the moon and that area is usually flat t or f highlands are light colored areas on the moon with lots of rough mountains if f explain correctly t t or f highlands on the moon appear to have fewer craters then do the maria if f explain correctly f highlands on the moon appear to have more craters than the mare t or f white lines that extend out in all directions from a crater are called rilles if f explain correctly white lines that extend out in all directions from a crater are called rays t or f structers that look like ditches channels canyons and streams are called rays if f explain correctly f structures that look like ditches channels canyons and streams are called rilles if one area of the moon has relativly few craters explain why this might be there probably in the mare section the reason there's probably not as many craters is because these were formed from lava and are not impact craters also a mare is a flat dark place at position e there are some mountains explian why these might result from an impact crater these result from an impact crater because as a crater is hitting the moon debris expel from the bottom and go flying somewhere else which creates other craters. As the crater hits though it makes the edge rise creating mountains but not only around the edge but around the whole crater the largest flooded crater is archimedes. Archimedes is 83km in diameter. What is the actual diameter if Eratosthenes the complex crater in the lower left corner of the photo eratosthenes is 1.8 in archimedes is 2.5 actual diameter of erat. is 59.76km WHat is the shortest distance between arch. and erat. scale is 1cm=33.2km distance in cm is 13.1cm shortest distance is 434.92km how aare night and day the same on moon and earth both have day and night half of the earth is always in daylight and half is in darkness just like the moon how are day and night von the moon and earth different the length one day onearth is 24hours and one day on moon is 28 days explain the mineral composition of rocks collected on the moon in terms of density Every rock collected on the moon has different density. Different density= different material rocks that are darker tend to have a higher density rocks that are lighter tend to have a lower density so mars are denser than highlands also minerals found in the center of the moon are very dense because when the moon was being formed it was molten and denser rocks sink to the center tell the density norite-52grams-18vol troctolite-75mass-22vol. ilmenite-102mass-22vol. anorthosite-60mass-20vol. 1. 2.892. 3.413. 4.644. 3 the dominent theory of the origin of the moon suggests a massive impact between earth and a planetoid produced a large quantity of ejecta some of which became the moon what keeps the moon from flying off into space earths gravitaional pull Authorverde17 ID86147 Card SetScience Final Descriptionstudy for science final on moon and earth Updated2011-05-16T20:51:42Z Show Answers
