solar system

Saturn uses 70% out of all 8 planets. Mercury is the smallest planet  one of Saturn’s moon is bigger than mercury. The solar system that we live in is over 4 and a half billion years old.

One of my understandings was that some big moons can be bigger than small planets. I also know understand that Saturn takes up 70% of all 8 planets.

The question I have is there ever going to be technology that will enable us to see what is up where all the planets are.

Questions:

Q1: What is a tsunami?

Q2: What causes a tsunami?

Q3: Are smaller tsunamis able to do more damage than other tsunamis.

Q4: Why are some tsunami’s bigger than other.

Q5: Do bigger tsunamis with less water capacity die down quicker than smaller tsunamis with more water capacity.

Answer:

Q1:A tsunami is a wave with a massive wave capacity and has a wave Length of 10 to 500km.

Q2:A tsunami is caused by an underwater volcano or earthquake ECT to make a vertical displacement in the crust.

Q3:Smaller tsunamis might have a bigger water capacity and might do more damage.

Q4:The reason why some tsunamis are bigger than the smaller tsunamis is because the vertical displacement is bigger than others.

Q5:Tsunamis with more water capacity won’t die down as quack because they have more water to push through things.

Glossary:

 

Tsunami: A tsunami is a deadly wave with a massive water capacity and will destroy anything in its way.

Vertical Displacement: This how the tsunami is formed when the vertical displacement happens all the water gets pushed up and bunched up to form a tsunami.

Tectonic plates: The tectonic plates is how they underwater earthquake is formed then it leads to the vertical displacement to turn into a tsunami.

Oil vs Milk

This week in our chemistry science unit we are doing an experiment on why some liquids mix with others and some don’t. the thing we are going towards is changing one state to another.

Aim: to observe what happens when we mix water and oil and water with milk. Find out why the outcomes happens.

Hypothesis: I predict that the oil and water will not mix with each other and the milk will be the opposite and I think it will mix with each other. Because of the molecules in the oil it doesn’t mix with the water.

Observations: When we mixed the oil with the water the oil stayed at the top of the water. The milk and the water mixed together. Once we observed what happened we mixed both the milk and water and oil and water. After 2 minutes we stooped the oil still didn’t mix but it was very bubbly the milk still looked the same.

Discussion/Explanation:

When we added the milk to the water it just looked like milk, half of milk is water and the other half is fat so the water mixed in with the fat and just looked like milk. then when we pour the oil into the water and found out that it is impossible or the two to mix because the oil molecules are more attached o each other than water molecules. It says on top because because it is less dense than water.

Conclusion: To sum up the milk mixes but the oil doesn’t simply because oil molecules are more attracted  to each other than water molecules. Because milk is half fat if you apply heat it will evaporate all the water and leave the fat behind. Then if you put more heat the fat will burn.
