Hello: two real questions here.
1) How does our sun’s magnetic field raise the corona’s temperature? I am looking for a moderately simple answer, please. While I have decent science background and can use the bay area’s many University libraries, for getting a full mathematical answer to this, I’m not,thanks.(I am aware how magnets work.)
My own thoughts on how the temperature goes up, comprise only: a) friction, b) density and c) velocity. I have no rank on those, and of course I’m seeking your answers, if I was happy with mine I wouldn’t be posting.
Here’s the links generating my question.
2) I realize cloudy nights specializes in telescopes and stars in general. Do you recommend a better place to post questions such as mine?
