What happens if we pour a bucket of water on the sun?
Simply put, a star is so massive that it gravitationally crushes itself to the point that its atoms fuse together. Throwing water on the sun would simply increase the sun’s mass, which would increase its gravity. This stronger gravity would crush the sun even more, leading to more nuclear fusion.
Can you put out the sun with water?
The probable answer is “no.” The Sun involves a special type of fire that is able to “burn” water, and so it will just get hotter, and six times brighter. Water is 89\% oxygen BY MASS. And the Sun’s overall density is 1.4 times that of water.
What happens if you pour water on the Moon?
If you pour out water on the Moon, something special will happen. It won’t stay liquid water — it will break up into a fine ice dust. Because there’s no air pressure, it boils at room temperature, in other words, it evaporates right away, because there’s no pressure keeping the water inside itself.
How much water is in the sun?
No amount of water will extinguish the sun. Water is H2O, two hydrogen and one oxygen.
Can water put out plasma?
Plasma is a state of matter which is so energetic that some or all of the atoms have had their electrons stripped off. So there’s actually no plasma in the liquid water itself, although the steam (gaseous water) can become part of the plasma. Otherwise the plasma just generates a bubble.
What if we extinguish the sun?
The pressure inside it would drop. The hydrogen couldn’t fuse together into helium. And that would shut the Sun down. With no Sun to give us warmth and light, the Earth would turn into a frozen world.
How much mass would destroy the sun?
4 million tons (in this case, metric tons) is 4,000,000,000 kilograms. Each kilogram of mass converted to energy results in the equivalent of a 21.5 megaton nuclear explosion. So, every second, the sun is hitting itself with a 86,000,000,000 megaton bomb. That’s 86 Petatons.
Is the water on the Moon drinkable?
Is moon water drinkable? “The water is chemically the same H2O as water on Earth, so if you can isolate it from the rock it’s mixed up in you will be able to drink it without issue.
Is fire a plasma?
Fire doesn’t fall into liquid, because it doesn’t have a fixed volume. Fire doesn’t fall into solid, because it doesn’t have a fixed shape. Thus, fire is currently considered a plasma.
Can a plasma cutter cut under water?
This is achieved at 450 Amps with Oxygen plasma, and the plate is submerged below 2 – 3 inches of water. Less than 2 inches will not reduce the noise and arc glare below acceptable limits. Fortunately, 2 inches is the piercing limit for plasma cutting on mild steel, so there’s really no need to push the limit.
