M&M lab Physics

When you performed Step 2 of the procedure, you actually made a cylinder of M&M'S®. The cylinder was rather "smushed," and the height of the cylinder was the thickness of an M&M'S®. Recall that the equation for the volume of a cylinder is V = (3.14)r2h.

Rearrange the equation for "h." Show your work.

Understanding our Galaxy

Given that we are trying to map the Milky Way from the inside, the fact that we've deduced as much as we have is pretty amazing.


Thinking about that mapping process and the use of astronomy in all part of the electromagnetic spectrum from radio to X-ray and gamma ray, explain which aspect of the Galaxy's structure do think is our most interesting - or hardest to understand - discovery?


Give one example of astronomical observations that have aided astronomers in understand the Milky Way's size and structure.
