Warm-up: 2/1/12 • Log onto Edmodo and complete the conclusion questions from yesterday’s solar system scale model demonstration.
Warm-up #3 • 38,400,000,000,000 km away 38,400,000,000,000 km / 10,000 km = 3,840,000,000 mm • 3,840,000,000 mm / 1000 mm (in 1 m) = 3,840,000 m • 3,840,000 m / 1000 m (in 1 km) = 3,840 km
