Star Luminosity Project
Why Does Our Sun Seem So Much Brighter Than Others
Stars In The Sky?
1. Describe What This Project Is Going To Prove
In this project I will prove the sun’s apparent brightness depend on the distance rather than the size.
The closer the sun is the brighter it appears and the farther the sun is the dimmer it appears.
2. Summarise One Of The Experiments That You Did And Explain How It Helps Prove Your
We had a flashlight and we move to 3 different spots we had to shine the flashlight on the
big paper and we drew 3 circles around the lights. The further the was from the wall the dimmer it was.
3. Summarize The Second Experiments And Explain How It Helps You prove Your Idea.
When the light gets closer to the sensor the brighter the light is. But if you get farther
the dimmer the brightness is.
4. Explain How You Proved Your Idea.
Based on our two experiments the farther the star is from the earth the dimmer it will be.
