What are the layers of the sun and what occurs in each layer?

The sun has many different layers that make up the sun: Core Radiation Zone Convection Zone Photosphere- sunspots Chromosphere Transition Region Corona The Core is the layer that stores all of the sun's energy. The Radiation Zone transfers the energy that the Core passes. The Convection Zone carries the sun's energy to the surface. The Photosphere is the visible surface of the sun. The Chromosphere is a thin surface above the Photosphere. The Corona is the sun's atmospheric layer.

What fraction of the universe does the sun take up?

According to current estimates, approximately 1/1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

How can you work out the density of a planet or star?

To find the density, you need both the mass and the radius of the planet or star. The mass can be found if the orbital radius and period of any of the body's satelites are known. If not, thth masses of most bodies can be looked up. The only way of finding the radius is to look it up or to measure it directly, or through spectroscopy. Once you have both values, you use the equation density = mass/volume. Mass is mass, and (assuming the object is spherical) volume is 4/3 * pi * r^3.

Which layers make up the atmosphere of the sun?

Photosphere- 6,000*C, it gives off energy in the form of light Chromosphere- 4,000-50,000*C, it glows with a reddish light typical of the color given off by hydrogen Corona- >1,000,000*C, it is not very dense but it has a magnetic field stopping subatomic particles from escaping into space

How is the solar chromosphere and corona heated to their high temperatures A Prominences and flares erupt from the photosphere out to the chromosphere and corona?

Obviously not by heat transfer; heat, of course, will only flow from hotter objects to colder objects. There are different theories about how the corona heats up; currently, it isn't known for sure which of these theories is correct.

The Color Sphere. Why? Because it is the atmospheric layer of the sun that gives it its yellowish-orangish color. It was in our science book so i am not making this up
