Answer to Question #499 in Astronomy | Astrophysics 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.
I just wanted to say thank you guys so much for helping me get through my statistics class. Any area in math has never been my strong field and thanks to you guys I was still able to pass my course.
thanks to you and all the people on your team that helped in me passing my course. :-)
