Description:

In this activity, students investigate solar activity and discover that the Sun constantly emits matter into space in the form of the solar wind. They will also find that from time to time the sun also ejects clouds of charged particles in an event called a coronal mass ejection (CME) which can cause harmful impacts on humans working in space, on communication satellites, and even on ground-based electric power systems and pipelines. As part of the activity, students will construct a graph to show the relationship between the sunspot cycle and coronal mass ejections. Teacher and student notes for using the graphing calculator are included.
