Yes I have a few more days to get this done.
Stages 1,2 and 3 is what I need done.
I think I understand. You need stage 1 done some time tomorrow, and the rest can take more time?
correct. i would like the rest by this tuesday. will that work?
There is a serious error in the instructions. "Solving for the mass, we get M1 = p2 / a3." This is inverted. The correct formula is M = a³ / p². Point it out to your instructor for bonus points.
okay i will. i just need it by 10 tonight
Reading through the rest of this, I am going to need more information.
I need to know the list of observatories "mentioned in our textbook," so I can pick one.
I need to know the instructions for the "moon observation activity," and probably need your location.
I think stage 2, question 2 is something you are going to need to do yourself, as all the information is on your end.
The "star count activity" in stage 3 is also going to need instructions. I hope that my location being different from yours is not going to cause problems.
i can get it to u later today.
I will be glad to help as soon as you get back to me.
I will do the last part just send me the rest. I will do stage 2 question 2 my self. My location is Nevada. Your location will be fine for any observations.
Here are the answers for stage 1. Enter them in the places they need to go. If you need me to upload the file instead, let me know.
"The actual diameter of the sun is(NNN) NNN-NNNNkm, which is not far off of my calculations, since I used a full meter as the image distance. Since you are dividing by the distance, changing that will greatly affect the accuracy. Increasing that distance would improve the accuracy."
1.823 x 10^27 kg
"The actual value for the mass of Jupiter is 1.898 * 1027 kg. I'm happy with that result."
All are in this doc. http://ge.tt/2lPaqDX/v/0
Not to contradict you, but the instructions are not in that file. It appears to only be the answer sheet.
stages.docx reads "1. Data and results from your star count activity: "
What am I suposed to be doing with it?
That is all the instructions that the professor gave us.
Here is Stage 2 and 3. It has a better explanation. Let me know if this helps. I need stage 2 and 3 by sat 5pm
Did you get it?
okay. thanks for the update.
Is this stage 3? What city/state did you observe this in? I need stage 2 first. That is the one I have to turn in by tomorrow night.
