Our Hope Our Future Students gain an understanding of why people immigrate and what life was like as an immigrant at the turn of the 20th century by traveling back in time by using primary sources. Unit Plan - Destination America: Our Hope Our Future Don't Trash the Earth Students play the role of waste management consultants and analyze past and current waste management practices at their school, then devise a recycling program. As they read about heroes in Greek mythology, they consider a contemporary hero and write a myth about that hero.
The atmospheric extinction brings the number of lux down to around The total amount of energy received at ground level from the Sun at the zenith depends on the distance to the Sun and thus on the time of year. It is about 3.
This is higher than the efficacy of source of most artificial lighting including fluorescentwhich means using sunlight for illumination heats up a room less than using most forms of artificial lighting.
Multiplying the figure of watts per square metre by 93 lumens per watt indicates that bright sunlight provides an illuminance of approximately 98 lux lumens per square meter on a perpendicular surface at sea level.
The illumination of a horizontal surface will be considerably less than this if the Sun is not very high in the sky. Averaged over a day, the highest amount of sunlight on a horizontal surface occurs in January at the South Pole see insolation.
However, the radiance at the centre of the sun's disk is somewhat higher than the average over the whole disk due to limb darkening.
Composition and power[ edit ] Solar irradiance spectrum above atmosphere and at surface. Extreme UV and X-rays are produced at left of wavelength range shown but comprise very small amounts of the Sun's total output power. Although the Sun produces gamma rays as a result of the nuclear-fusion process, internal absorption and thermalization convert these super-high-energy photons to lower-energy photons before they reach the Sun's surface and are emitted out into space.
As a result, the Sun does not emit gamma rays from this process, but it does emit gamma rays from solar flares.
Although the solar corona is a source of extreme ultraviolet and X-ray radiation, these rays make up only a very small amount of the power output of the Sun see spectrum at right. The term ultraviolet refers to the fact that the radiation is at higher frequency than violet light and, hence, also invisible to the human eye.
Due to absorption by the atmosphere very little reaches Earth's surface. This spectrum of radiation has germicidal propertiesas used in germicidal lamps. It is also greatly absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere, and along with UVC causes the photochemical reaction leading to the production of the ozone layer.
It directly damages DNA and causes sunburnbut is also required for vitamin D synthesis in the skin and fur of mammals. This band was once[ when? However, UVA is now known to cause significant damage to DNA via indirect routes formation of free radicals and reactive oxygen speciesand can cause cancer.
As the name suggests, this range is visible to the naked eye. It is also the strongest output range of the Sun's total irradiance spectrum. It comprises an important part of the electromagnetic radiation that reaches Earth. Scientists divide the infrared range into three types on the basis of wavelength:ICD CM and ICD PCS Workbook -Proprietary and Confidential- © himagine solutions inc.| East Palm Avenue Chapter 3: Diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs and certain disorders involving the These sessions along with this workbook will .
