Question

The graphic organizer compares energy transfer in two layers of the Sun. A venn diagram of 2 intersecting circles with the left circle labeled convection zone and the right circle labeled radiative zone. There is an X in the convection zone circle. There is a Y in the radiative zone. Which labels belong in the regions marked X and Y? X: Absorbs energy from the core Y: Takes longer for photons to move through X: Releases energy to the photosphere Y: Takes longer for photons to move through X: Takes longer for photons to move through Y: Absorbs energy from the core X: Takes longer for photons to move through Y: Releases energy to the photosphere

X: Takes longer for photons to move through

Y: Releases energy to the photosphere

Explanation:

X: Absorbs energy from the core.

Y: Releases energy to the photosphere.

Explanation:

Convection is a mode of heat transfer through fluids (liquids or gas), and it requires material medium for its propagation.

The energy absorbed from the core of the Sun, is transferred through X (convection zone) by convectional process, and it flows to Y (radiative zone). Since the regions X and Y have different functions, the heat propagates from X causing photons to traverse through Y where it get released into the photosphere or the Sun’s surface.

Therefore;

X: Absorbs energy from the core.

Y: Releases energy to the photosphere.
