Answer on Astronomy | Astrophysics Question for Amanda
The total luminosity at all wavelengths of the magnetar burst observed on December 27,2006 was approximately 10^14 Lum. At what distance from the magnetar would the brightness of the burst have been equal to the brightness of the Sun as seen on Earth?
You can find the distance where brightness of the burst have been equal to the brightness of the Sun as seen on Earth in following way: Distance to the Sun * square root of (Luminosity/Luminosity of the Sun) Luminosity is given in the problem and approximately equal to 10^14Lum.
