## Solar Systems

If you have a pool at your home or seasonal residence, then you need to know about solar pool heating.  Using solar energy to heat your pool offers the quickest payback for your investment dollars into a solar system. These solar systems do the same job as gas or electricity, yet with virtually zero annual costs!

## 1 Kw Solar System

Max Said:Solar power question!!!?We Answered:just do the arithmetic. 1.56 kw * 8 hr/day * 60 days = 749 kwh That will not do the trick. power = 2256/(8*60) = 4.7 kw...

## 1.5kw Solar System

Mildred Said:What is the differnece between 1,2,4,8 core wires?We Answered:For a low voltage solar system your cables need to have adequate current-carrying capacity to minimise the volt-drops and power losses along the cable. The current rating of a cable depends mainly on its cross-sectional area (csa). But the greater the csa of an individual wire, the stiffer the cable becomes, making it hard to install. So the cable is made from several separate wires twisted together which give the required total csa or diameter, but it is much more flexible and so quicker and cheaper to install. These wires are called "cores"...

## 10 Kw Solar System

Claudia Said:how much electricity should my solar panels produce?We Answered:Australian prices seem to be in the \$0.20/kWhr range. Assuming this, you are getting about 50 kWhr per month out of your solar system. Unless you are in very cloudy are, this is less than 1/3 the power you should be getting. Something's wrong and needs fixing. A guess at your financing gives an 8 year loan on \$10,000. This 8-year payoff is about 1/4 the life of a solar system, so you need about \$20/month of electricity for the system to break even. If you get your system working properly, it...

## 12v Solar Panel

Frank Said:I want to know what capacity of a solar panel will charge a 12v 200AH deep cycle battery to full charge?We Answered:* I think you mean a 2.5 KW. inverter right? At 10 hours, figuring in losses you need about 33KWH. per day. That's 14-15 batteries, (You don't want to run them into deep discharge. * 'Average sunlight" - you get about 4-6 hours of useful insolation per day, as a minimum, (Seasonal variations), depending on your latitude.

## 12v Solar System

Jack Said:Where can I find a "temperature compensation chart" for 12v sealed batteries being used on a solar systemWe Answered:I was unable to locate chart but found this which may help you to get an idea of what you are up against. It may be better news than you expected. When considering the effect of temperature it is worth noting the ambient or average temperature of the battery installation as the batteries float life is shortened (this applies equally to all lead - acid batteries) with high ambient temperatures but the cycle life is affected a lot less, therefore a higher DOD...

## 2kw Solar System

Joe Said:Im a bit confused about what a solar panel is?We Answered:As Aviophage says, there is plenty of info around. Solar panels produce electrical energy from the sunlight's energy. The sun puts out around 100W per square meter, and the panels are up to 20% efficient at converting this. If you are looking for a Grid Connected power system, they are usually made up of 24V modules about 150W each. The full voltage produced is then around 150V to 500V DC depending on the sun etc. They are connected to a specialised "grid connect" or "grid interactive" inverter (look up Sunny...

## 3 Kw Solar System

Pedro Said:Thermodynamics problem?We Answered:(1) Mass of water to be heated = Volume*Density M = 1.2*1.0x10^3 kg M = 1.2x10^3 kg Temperature Rise = 40-10 = 30 Degrees C or 30 K (same amount of rise - although 30K is not 30 degrees C) Energy Needed = specific heat capacity*mass to be heated*change in temp. E = 4.2x10^3*1.2*10^3*30 J = 1.512x10^8 J That's close enough to 1.5x10^8 J (2) Time required to heat water in seconds = 2*60*60 = 7200 s Power Needed = Energy/time P = 1.5*10^8 / 7200 = 20.833x10^3 W = 20.833 kW Area of solar panels needed = Power / average power per unit area Area = 20.833/0.8 = 26.04...

## 3d Solar System Model

Julian Said:Model of Copernicus' solar system?We Answered:Depends on how unique and pricey you want it. If in high school or lower, you can just get styrofoam ball's or even wooden spheres at any craft store and spray paint 'em, then hang them of a clothes hangers. For college, you'll probably need to do a lot more research. Copernicus didn't make a physical model so much as theoretical idea.

## 5 Kw Solar System

Francisco Said:Will a powerful computer overload my solar system?We Answered:If you had an off grid solar system, then every bit of power matters, and I would recommend not getting that kind of computer. However, the size of your system, 4.5 kW, suggests that it is grid-tied. There are no battery banks, right? In that case, you can draw as much power as you want, as long as you don't blow the house breakers. If you use more than the solar array can provide, the electric company will make up the rest....

## A Model Of The Solar System

Margaret Said:what is the main problem with a solar system model of the atom?We Answered:The mechanical orbital model of the atom does not account for the energy radiated by the orbiting electron. Accelerating charges (rotational motion is accelerated motion) emits electromagnetic waves, which removes kinetic energy from the charge. The orbital model results in rapid collapse of the electron orbit. Quantum mechanics eventually solved this, but still retained the possibility of planet-like orbital motion. It was later when the uncertainty principle was discovered, that prevents us knowing where the electron is and its velocity both to high precision....

## A Picture Of The Solar System

Paula Said:How do i know that there are other planets besides Earth?We Answered:I can't tell if your question is about whether planets exist, or about whether we should care about them. Well, you may be happy to know the existence of other planets was confirmed thousands of years ago, without spending any of your tax dollars. You can see Jupiter with your own eyes if you step outside tonight (it's brighter than any of the stars); likewise you can see Venus and Saturn if you get up early tomorrow morning and look toward the east.

Virginia Said:Suppose the masses of all bodies of the solar system doubled, but their orbits remained the same.?We Answered:If the sun doesn't double in mass the orbits remain the same. All the orbits can be pretty well approximated by the 1 body problem and have been stable for billions of years. If the sun doubles in mass, the force would double and the velocity would increase by a factor of sqrt(2) and the period would decrease by a factor of sqrt(2). This system can still be approximated by the 1 body problem and would, in general, be...

## Build Model Solar System

Dan Said:If astronauts took some spheres, of various sizes and density, in to free-fall:?We Answered:Yes, but oddly enough, it would operate just as slowly as the real solar system. The period of an orbit depends on the density of material within that orbit. For example, a grain of sand would orbit a ball bearing just above its surface with a period of 90 minutes or so, the same as the period of a satellite in low earth orbit, because the ball bearing has about the same density as the Earth.

## Designing Solar Power Systems

Alan Said:solar powered residences....?We Answered:You have to calculate first the total demand of energy for the house, in Watt/hour. i.e. a fridge uses 200W, but does not work all day (half of it), so it would require 200W * 12h = 2400Wh a cooker would be 2kw, but runs 1/2 hour a day, so 2000 * 0.5 = 1kWh.... etc This gives you the total kWh you need, and this is the amount of energy you must store in your batteries. Say you arrive at 5kWh. Divide by the battery voltage (i.e. 5000Wh / 12V = 416A) You need a total of 420Ah batteries, or 4...

This last category includes asteroids, meteoroids, comets, and interplanetary dust. The principal component of the Solar System is the Sun or Sol, (astronomical symbol ?); a main sequence G2 star that contains 99.86% of the system's known mass and dominates it gravitationally.[3] Because of its large mass, the Sun has an interior density high enough...

## Diagram Of The Solar System

Frances Said:does every solar system have a Oort cloud?We Answered:We don't yet know whether every solar system has an Oort cloud, because OCs are so dark we can barely see anything in our own OC. They're easy to see through because they have very low density -- the spaces between the "chunks" are very large. I don't think it will surprise anyone if we someday discover that OCs are common to most solar systems. OCs could even, conceivably, overlap -- perhaps some OC objects are even echanged between stars....

## Grid Tie Solar System

Sherry Said:how do I convert the out put of solar panels in watts to kilowatts per month.?We Answered:Multiply 400 watts times hours per month time efficiency. Divide by 1000 to make kW. Say 400W * 200hr/mo * 90% /1000 = 72kW-hr per month. The efficiency above is for misalignment to the sun. As the sun moves during the day, it's rarely perfectly oriented. Also, some panels often don't put out rated current. If they get dirty, less power. BTW, two big issues are that solar cells make direct current (DC), often at 12V or 24V nominal, and you may need electricity when the...

The solar hot water systems I have come across consists of basically a long thin metal (usually may be copper) pipe arranged inside a panel and exposed to the sun, so that the water inside this pipe heats up when the sun falls on the panel, and an insulated tank to store the heated water. Water at normal temperature is fed into the pipe inside the panel from...

## House Solar Panels

Alice Said:How much does it cost to power up an average house with solar panels?We Answered:I can give you the stats on my home and my panels. I live in a 2000 sf home in a warm climate. I was averaging 45 kwh per day. I purchased a 3.74 kwh d/c system, which had 20 panels. The total cost was \$26K, I received a \$10K rebate (so I paid \$16K) from my utility and a \$2K fed tax credit ( it is now around \$8K). This system produces about 90% of my summer usage and about 75% of my winter...

## House Solar Power System

Carlos Said:I am trying to find a good solar system?We Answered:For short periods of time it would be more cost effective to get a gas generator, however you did post this under green living so I'm assuming that you are not to concerned about the cost. To buy solar panels, you will have to buy through a distributor (eg. http://sunelec.com/) since solar panels are not very mainstream, hopefully w/ time the price of the panels will drop. The cheaper panels go for about \$2.90/watt. You will also need a battery array to store the electricity, a larger array for extended...

## How Big Is The Solar System

Jon Said:I want run my security system off solar. How big of a panel do I need IF it needs 730mA at 9VAC.?We Answered:If your system will actually run on standby for 24 hours off a 1.2 ampere hour battery, it needs about 44 milliamperes (ma). Estimate no more than an additional 6 ma to maintain the battery. This is a total of only 50 ma. At 6 volts (DC from the battery) this is a total of 0.3 watts. The AC side of the system is said to need 730 ma at 9 VAC,or 6.6...

## How Do Solar Panels Work

Beatrice Said:PhD or Masters if I want to work in industry?We Answered:Starting out, the initial salary of a PhD in physics is significantly higher than of an MS in physics. And, if you graph the salary of the PhD and MS, you can see that they both increase roughly linearly over your career. However, surprisingly, the MS salary has a higher slope, so they both intersect roughly a decade out of school. After that, the PhD salary just can't keep up. My thinking is that the MS earners go into management, which may not be worth the extra money. Depends on...

## How Solar Panels Work

Wendy Said:how much the capacity off the solar panels to produce 10A loud?We Answered:you need to specify a voltage. If it is 240 volts, that is 2400 watts. If you want this to provide power when the sun is out, you need at least 3 times that capacity, and a large battery system. What do you mean by "working time"? Any solar panel should last 20 years. edit: "working time 10Hours for 10A load after the sun out" You still didn't mention voltage.

Eddie Said:Which thesis sounds the best?We Answered:The most concise thesis is number 4. It is well written and easily understood.Larry Said:Diameter of the solar system is approximately: 7,500,000,000 miles.?We Answered:First off, this would probably be better served in the astronomy section, although I'm guessing that many of the folk there also browse here (as I do). Second, your instructor is not very good with astronomy. There are now eight planets, not nine. Pluto has been demoted to a group of now six dwarf planets. So the size of the main Solar System is either two times the distance to...

## List Of Solar Systems

Carolyn Said:Which Planet is now recently listed out from our Solar System?We Answered:I know you're probably thinking of Pluto, which used to be called a planet but is now properly regarded (along with Charon, and other far-away objects that do not sweep their orbits) as a "dwarf planet (which is a polite name for large asteroid). However, there have been a number of celestial objects once classified as planets but since demoted. Long before Pluto (and Neptune) were discovered, some of the larger chunks in the asteroid belt were actually designated as "planets". These included Ceres, which is over 400...

Why doesn't our moon rotate?We Answered:All the Moons in the solar system rotate, including ours. Our Moon rotates once a month. If you set yourself up a simple model of the Earth, Sun, Moon system, you'll see the Moon has to rotate in order for the same side to always face the Earth. It's becoming tidally locked with the Earth, so that's why we only see one side, but it...

## Moons Solar System

Corey Said:In what sense are Jupiter and its moons like a miniature solar system?We Answered:The moons of Jupiter orbit that planet the way planets would orbit a star (the same could be said for Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune). The moons of Jupiter are very small compared to the planet, just as planets are very small compared to the parent star. The galilean moons decrease in density with distance from Jupiter (Io = 3.5 g/cm^3, Europa = 3.01, Ganymede = 1.94, and Callisto = 1.83). This is a trend (though it doesn't hold completely for all Jupiter's moons). A possible explanation...

## New Solar System

Floyd Said:Can someone tell me about the new Solar System that has been spotted by scientists recently.?We Answered:A team of European astronomers said on Wednesday that they had found one of the closest analogues yet to our solar system: three planets and an asteroid belt circling a pale Sun-like star about 42 light-years away in the constellation Puppis. The two innermost of the new Puppis planets, each about 10 times the mass of Earth, are probably rocky like our own home, but they circle too tightly about their star to be habitable. The third planet, about 18 times the mass of Earth,...

## Nine Planets Our Solar System

Kent Said:Do you think there could be another planet in our solar system? reason?We Answered:Excellent question (finally something worth answering) Yes. Planet formation is a hit and miss affair and the success or failure of a planet to form is based on a number of things. The main one is how quickly it can accrete material in relation to those other planets around it. Look at the asteroid belt. If Jupiter hadn't have grown so big, so quickly there would actually be another terrestial planet there. So lets look at the next anomoly - the Edgeworth-Kueper belt. ...

## Number Of Planets In Solar System

Darrell Said:What is the number of the planets in our solar system?We Answered:No one knows for sure, but the current official number is nine with Pluto being demoted to a dwarf planet and a new planet being discovered. Edit: Shadow: 1) Learn to spell. 2) A dwarf planet does not count as a planet. 3) Pluto wouldn't be the eighth planet as MOST of the time it is OUTSIDE Neptune's (Read: NOT URANUS or however you spelt it...) orbit. 4) By your reasoning, there should be 9 planets anyway if you count Pluto and doubt the existence of the new planet.

## Off Grid Solar System

Mario Said:is 2Kilowatts = to 48Kilowatt hours?We Answered:The theoretical output of the 2kW array is in fact 48kWh per day, so technically speaking you're right. But in reality, a 2kW system really can only support about 16kWh/day, and that's stretching it. It doesn't work the way you think it does simply because the sun doesn't shine 24 hours a day. The PV array needs to be oversized to compensate for: * sunlight hours for the given latitiude * sunlight intensity (angle and weather) * storage inefficiency As a rule of thumb, you need about 3-4x the collector capacity vs. the daily Wh use. So your...

Some of the particles started to orbit, creating Planetesimals. The center compress until it ignited and became a star. The planetesimals cooled and became planets and asteroids. The evidence to support this model include the fact all of the planets orbit in the same direction. And the fact we can see solar nebula at different levels of development through out the galaxy.Katherine...

Rose Said:how do the planets in our solar system orbit the sun?We Answered:You ever seen a bowling ball sitting on a trampoline? Where it makes the indention at its heaviest point? Do that sometime and then roll a marble around it and watch what happens. The Sun works somewhat like that bowling ball would, with the trampoline surface representing the fabric of space (not 3 dimentional of course). Granted that marble would roll towards the bowling ball on Earth eventually because of gravity, space is a vacuum and nothing would "pull" the planet down. So it continues to move at the...

Derek Said:Can a planet (with life) exist where there are there two suns in it's solar system?We Answered:Two suns orbiting each other is called a binary system. They are very common. Almost certainly, most of these binary systems start out with a collection of planets. The trouble is that life requires billions of years in order to reach any significant stage of development. That means that the planet on which the life is located must be stable for that length of time. It is exceedingly difficult to find stable orbits for planets in a binary system, because the two stars will tend...

## Small Solar Panels

Clinton Said:where do you get little solar panels?We Answered:Thin-film solar panels are a great way to go if you're looking for small solar panels. Thin-film have the advantage of being lighter while a traditional crystalline panel is more efficient so it can produce more power with the same area. With the increasing efficiency of thin-film solar panels, however, they are quickly becoming an excellent option for portable power solutions. If you want crystalline panels instead of thin-film, the DURAlite line is a good example of a portable solar panel that uses regular polycrystalline solar cells. DURAlite panels come in 5, 10, or...

## Solar Collector System

Jean Said:The venturi flowmeter shown below is used to measure the flow rate of water in a solar collector system.?We Answered:This is, of course, a Bernoulli's principle problem. Bernoulli's equation states that P + ?v^2/2 + ?gh remains constant. P is indicated by manometer height: P = ?gh; thus if we lump P into ?gh the equation becomes ?v^2/2 + ?gh = constant, or ?v1^2/2 + ?gh1 = ?v2^2/2 + ?gh2 (1) We solve for v1 to find the volume flow rate. From (1), v1^2-v2^2 = -2g?h where ?h=h1-h2 Because of continuity (constancy of volume flow rate due to incompressibility), v2/v1 = area...

This may be more or less of course depending on your computer. (seems to me to be a little understated) but it's a stat. Unfortuneately, it would be very costly to implement something like this. If you looked at some retail solar panels: http://www.solarpanelstore.com/solar-pow… you will see that for aproximately 30Watts of power, the unit itself costs around \$225. You would probably need about 3 of these as a minimum .... up to \$675 -...

## Solar Electricity For Homes

Calvin Said:Is it possible to store the energy from lightning, and use it for electricity, cars, and homes?We Answered:Possible, but in spite of Jack's optimism, not considered too practical. From the ref., a typical strike has about 360 kwh of energy, of which only 0.1% to 1% is delivered at the strike point, since most of the energy is dissipated heating the air along its path. The other issues are frequency of strikes in a given area and the height and spacing of towers needed to capture a good percentage of these. And there is the effect of decreasing E-field,...

## Solar Electricity System

Harry Said:If our solar system was an atom, how would electrons be represented?We Answered:The motion of planets around the Sun is nothing like electrons around an atomic nucleus. The planets orbit approximately in a plane, under the influence of gravity. Electrons don't orbit in the same way at all. Their positions at any given time cannot be predicted. You can only calculate a probability distribution, which would be in the form of a spherical shell, or a dipole, or any number or higher-order forms.Margie Said:In what way is an atom like the solar system?We Answered:an atom...

## Solar Electricity Systems

Curtis Said:How can I make an electricity system?We Answered:You could use solar power, but you have to get a panel that is rated to drive the "air pump" max power requirement. On the other hand, I believe most aquarium air pumps are AC pumps, so without you having more electrical experience, I would say this project is beyond you. And on a final note, the fish do not need an "air pump", they need filtration, and water changes. If you have a filter ( and I sure hope you do! ), then set it to agitate the surface of the water. Even...

## Solar Energy Companies

Jorge Said:Did American Oil companies boycott the Solar, Electric, Hydrogen and Hybrid alternative energy fuel vehicles?We Answered:Cars are built by car companies not oil companies.

Juan Said:How can you travel through the Sun ?We Answered:You could gain an enormous amount of information about plasma physics, stellar astrophysics, particle physics and probably a dozen other fields of study if you *could* send a probe to travel through the outer atmosphere of the sun. It would have a huge number of obstacles to overcome - intense temperature, magentic fields, gravity, x-ray/gamma-ray radiation and massive particle flux ... to name a few! Even if a probe could get there and measure something useful without the instrumentation being destroyed - how would it communicate with earth. Almost any radio signal would...

## Solar Energy For Homes

Nelson Said:What does Nuclear (Uranium) energy do?We Answered:Electricity and steam heat, irradiate gems, produce medical isotopes and tritium. Non uranium nuclear energy is used to sterilize things, irradiate food, radiography, medical diagnosis, medical treatment, and many other uses. Despite all the cosmic energy that the word "nuclear" invokes, power plants that depend on atomic energy don't operate that differently from a typical coal-burning power plant. Both heat water into pressurized steam, which drives a turbine generator. The key difference between the two plants is the method of heating the water. While coal plants burn fossil fuels, nuclear plants depend on the...

## Solar Energy Panel

Shelly Said:what is the average amount energy produced by a single solar panel per day?We Answered:Very roughly, the most common size of a solar panel in professional residential installations is about 200 watts. From there, the amount of energy harvested depends on the amount of equivalent peak sun that the panel gets per day. That number is not the same as sunrise to sunset, because the sun is very much weaker in the morning and late afternoon, even though it may not seem so. You can get a map of equivalent sun for your area at http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/old_data/nsr… . ...

Andrew Said:how does space vehicles travels outside solar system?We Answered:Law of physics: "An object in motion tends to stay in motion". In space, where there is no air and nothing to cause friction, a space ship will STAY MOVING until it hits something. But without fuel, it can not change direction, adn it cannot accelerate (or decelerate)! it will continue to travel in a straight line. Solar power provides ONLY electricity to power computers and such. Solar power DOES NOT provide any FUEL needed for changing course or changing speed. You can use the "slingshot effect" to let gravity help speed...

One case is to remain hooked to the utility grid, and simply 'dump' the excess generated power back onto grid and use the grid when the solar generation is insufficient for the residential load. The other case is to employ a battery system, whereby the solar unit generates enough for the 'day' usage, and enough left over to charge the batteries for 'night' usage. At the moment, the available (and reliable) technology is panels, rather than...

## Solar Power Information

Tonya Said:what are the advantages and dis advantages of solar power?We Answered:Advantages: The 89 petawatts of sunlight reaching the earth's surface is plentiful compared to the 15 terawatts of average power consumed by humans. Additionally, solar electric generation has the highest power density (global mean of 170 W/m2) among renewable energies. Solar power is pollution free during use. Production end wastes and emissions are manageable using existing pollution controls. End-of-use recycling technologies are under development. Facilities can operate with little maintenance or intervention after initial setup. Solar electric generation is economically competitive where grid connection or fuel transport is difficult, costly or impossible....

## Solar Power Installation

Harvey Said:How many Megawatts of power does the Space Shuttle produce each second during flight?We Answered:First you have to get the terminology correct. Power per second is a meaningless concept as power is already energy per second. What you want is the power it produces, OR the energy per second (same thing). Total power on takeoff is about 12 GW, or 12000 MW. When the booster rockets burn out, this reduces to 2 GW from the main engines. These rockets do NOT use liquid oxygen and hydrogen, that was the Saturn V used in Apollo moon shots. edit, correction, the...

## Solar System Heating

Gilbert Said:if global warming is man made why are the other planets in the solar system also heating up?We Answered:Only 6 planets or moons out of the 100+ bodies in the solar system have been observed to be warming. On the other hand, Uranus is cooling. Martian climate is primarily driven by dust and albedo and there is little empirical evidence that Mars is showing long term warming. Neptune's orbit is 164 years so current brightening is a seasonal response (Neptune's southern hemisphere is heading into summer). Triton's warming is due to the moon approaching an extreme southern summer, a season...

## Solar System Information

Peggy Said:information about solar system?We Answered:The Solar System consists of the Sun and those celestial objects bound to it by gravity, all of which formed from the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately 4.6 billion years ago. Of the retinue of objects that orbit the Sun, most of the mass is contained within eight relatively solitary planets whose orbits are almost circular and lie within a nearly-flat disc called the ecliptic plane. The four smaller inner planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, also called the terrestrial planets, are primarily composed of rock and metal. The four outer planets, Jupiter,...

## Solar System Inverter

Vanessa Said:For one day, how much power does a 225 Watt-peak Solar module produce?We Answered:15% efficiency means that 15% of the sunlight power that falls on the panel will come out as electrical power. If you figure that 225 W panel will give the peak equivalent output for 5 hrs/day you will have an energy of 225 * 5 = 1125 Wh/day If your inverter operates at 95% efficiency, you will get out 1125*0.95 = 1069 Wh/day The inverter will likely only operate at peak efficiency at one set of input voltage and current. It will likely fall off as you...

## Solar System Inverters

Christian Said:I am hooking up an inverter to a solar system for my barn. Grounding?We Answered:The gauge of wire will depend on the current it may have to conduct (Amperage). See http://www.cerrowire.com/default.aspx?id… for different wire types, both in copper and aluminum. Keep in mind that any connectors you use have to be rated for that material, so if you use aluminum wire you'll need to use connectors rated for aluminum wire. Use a slide hammer (commonly used for steel fence post installation) to drive an 8 foot ground rod in near the inverter, and connect the two. Verify the ground...

## Solar System Jupiter

Stacy Said:Where is Jupiter in our solar system?We Answered:Jupiter is in orbit around the Sun so its distance from other planets varies a lot. At this time, the Earth is more or less between Jupiter and the Sun and Mars and the Sun. We know this because at night, you can see Jupiter and Mars. I think you meant to ask about the relative distances from Jupiter's orbit from the orbits of other solar system features. The reference below gives each planet and the distance from its average orbit from the Sun in AU. AU is a unit of...

It also has to dominate the neighborhood around its orbit and pluto doesn't do that. It also has...

## Solar System Rebate

Donald Said:do you think government is hypocricical?We Answered:Though your question isn't exactly clear in the details. The rebate makes sense, because somtimes conversions to energy saving systems cost more that the old default. However, people who have low finances to begin with are more likely never to upgrade because they wouldn't be able to afford to switch in the first place. Its one problem when Goverment's think "Oh this will save poor people money because it uses less engergy." but they forget to think about the fact that these poor people are too poor to afford to upgrade, that the savings...

## Solar System Rebates

Elmer Said:When will solar rebates actually benefit the DYI'er?We Answered:All I can suggest is that you check carefully with the authorities to see whether there isn't some provision for you to get the rebate standing as your own installer. I did a self-install here in California, and the state was happy to send me the check. I was still subject to all permits and inspections, of course, as I would be if I was building, say, my own addition to my house. Perhaps the installer's lobby is strong in CT, and influenced the structure of the rebate to shut out...

And it’s not easy since the boundaries can’t always be defined. When people think of the solar system, they have in mind only the sun and the planets that orbit the sun. Since Pluto is no longer counted as a planet, the size of the solar system up to the farthest planet has to stop at Neptune. From the sun...

## Solar System Sun

Kathryn Said:Why do all objects of the inner solar system rotate the sun on relativley the same plane?We Answered:As already mentioned, the solar system formed from a collapsing cloud of dust and gas. As this cloud collapsed, it did so unevenly and began to spin. As it spun it flattened out and eventually formed a rough disk shape with the sun at the center. An analogy for this flattening would be spinning a pizza crust in the air: as it spins it also flattens out from a ball into a flat disk. From this disk the...

## Solar System Suppliers

Martin Said:I need to obtain some 12volt DC fuses for a solar system. does anybody know of a supplier in the UK?We Answered:A fuse is rated by current i.e 1A or 200mA or 5A etc. As long the fuse is used on voltages below its voltage rating you can use it. So a 250 volt fuse can be used on a 12 volt system. It is the current that matters in rupturing the fuse, as it depends on the heating effect given by the square of the current through the fuse multiplied by the resistance of the fuse. You could...

## Solar System The Planets

Morris Said:why the outer solar system planets are gas and inner solar system planets are rock?We Answered:As our solar system was forming some 5-billion years ago it's thought that the object that would eventually become our sun formed first. Consequently it had more mass and thus more gravitational pull on remaining gas and dust in the immense nebula from which it was built. Any other nearby objects therefore received more material themselves; they became more dense than new planets forming farther out where the infall of nebular stuff was less.Lance Said:What are the outer solar system planets called....??We Answered:you mean...

Charles Said:briefly descibe how our solar system was formed?We Answered:An interstellar cloud of gas and dust was most likely disturbed by a nearby supernova or the passage of a star, prodding it into collapsing under its own gravity. As the could collapsed it flattened. The center of the cloud gathered the most mass, increasing the temperature and pressure until nuclear fusion began. That was the birth of our Sun. In the outer parts of the cloud, clumps of dust and gas accumulated until our planets were formed. That's the short and dirty version. If you need...

## Space For Kids Solar System

Nellie Said:Would you prefer to live in space or on a planet?We Answered:A planet with a blanket from radiation. In space you are usually fairly exposed and the long term effects of cosmic ray exposure are unknown, but no doubt quite devastating seeing as how they are more ionising than UV or X-rays. Also you're muscles atrophy in zero gravity (because you aren't using them very much). I don't think that a space-house would work logistically for these reasons. Considering your sales pitch: Okay, assuming that what O'Neill has proposed is completely possible theoretically, instead consider the logistics and engineering involved here,...

The fact that they all follow roughly the same path through the sky means that they all lie on roughly the same plane. This...

## Stand Alone Solar Power System

Bessie Said:Review my story please?We Answered:It's definitely an engulfing story, but you really need to paragraph it (I mean double-Enter, not indenting). It's quite hard to read in it's current state. Also, your adjectives/metaphors tend to contradict each other, and it can throw the reading off. At the first example; "Texas is like some sort of wacky cult and my dad is their God." A description like "Wacky cult" completely clashes with the description before it. This tended to happen a bit throughout the rest of the story. The planets metaphor in the beginning is another good example of that. Other than that,...

Who could have thought of a greater plan than God?Ruth Said:Do you believe anti matter is the reason...

## Stars And The Solar System

Cory Said:Three stars in one solar system... is this possible?We Answered:Not possible because only our system is "a solar system". We are in the ONLY solar system in the entire universe. As for three stars in a STELLAR SYSTEM, of course it is possible. The nearest star system is a binary star system (Alpha Centauri) which has a third smaller star Proxima Centauri of questionable long term relationship with the two larger stars. Or, three stars in a PLANETARY SYSTEM, even that is possible. You don't even need to make it fiction (like the Trisol system in Futurama), because...

## What Is A Solar System

Allan Said:What will happen if suddenly sun is removed from our solar system?We Answered:Although gravity might act instantly most of us will not notice any thing until the sunlight went out. Scientists would determine the exact nanosecond that the sunlight went out and the exact nano second that the sun's gravity ceased to affect the earth. Some life on earth may be affected by the sudden reduction in sunlight. Afterwards each planet and its moons move onto a new trajectory as a system. No planet is going to run over any of its moons, all its moons are safe, no one will...
