  • Speed= Frequency - Wavelength
  • Speed= Frequency x Wavelength
  • Speed= Frequency / Wavelength

2. What is red shift?

  • Red shift is when distant planets move towards us, the wavelengths change and give off a red glow.
  • When planets are moving away from us a high speeds, scientists use the term 'red shift' to explain at what rate it's moving away.
  • When a galaxy is moving away from us and the wavelength of the light from it changes, this causes the light to become redder.
  • Wavelengths change and appear to turn any light source a red type color.

3. Explain the evidence that shows that the universe is expanding.

  • Red shift can be seen, and we know that red shift occurs when objects in space are moving away.
  • Purple haze can be seen, and we know that purple haze occurs when objects in space are moving away.
  • Blue shift can be seen, and we know that blue shift occurs when objects in space are moving away.
  • Yellow shift can be seen, and we know that yellow shift occurs when objects in space are moving away.

4. What type of seismic wave cannot pass through liquids?

  • Both.
  • Neither.
  • S-Waves.
  • P-Waves.

5. Roughly how many times larger is the diameter of the Milky Way than the diameter of the sun?

  • 100 billion times bigger.
  • 1000 billion times bigger.
