Description:

In this activity, students calculate the velocity and acceleration of a coronal mass ejection (CME) based on its position in a series of images from the Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph Experiment (LASCO) instrument on the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) satellite. Using a feature that can be seen in all the images, they will measure its position and time, then calculate the average velocity. The activity can be performed using pencil and paper, or an online image and freeware program provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The site also contains background information for the teacher and links for more information.
