## andrewv one year ago The table below concerns various elongation configurations for a hypothetical superior planet. Complete any missing elongations, terminology, or lettered labelsonthe drawing where the Sun and Earth are shown.

Yeah ive tried multple attempts of looking online for resources. It simply doesnt make sense to me...I have a blurry picture which i can kind of sort of make out what 2 of the answers are but not the others Perhaps you may be able to decipher the rest?

4. anonymous

An opposition is always 180 degrees to the Sun.

7. andrewv

from the picture it would appear that "c" elongation is 0°

8. andrewv

B elongation appears to be West 90°

9. andrewv

although i cant be entirely sure..

10. anonymous

Yes C elongation angle would be 0

11. anonymous

It would be called a conjunction.

12. anonymous

So C is done. For B, any quadrature (no matter eastern or western) is 90 degrees.

13. andrewv

Just conjunction?

14. andrewv

not superior conjunction or inferior conjunction?

15. anonymous

No the picture you have a superior conjunction (attached file has a hypothetical superior planet in it). Dont worry about the picture in the right.

16. anonymous

I do not have a background with this, so you can write that if your teacher mentions superior conjunction or superior opposition.

17. andrewv

I understand. Its all good. you helped me even a little and i truly appreciate it (:

18. anonymous

Aw, thank you!

19. anonymous

Did you finish filling everything in the box?

20. anonymous

Now you have to plot it using the letters.

21. anonymous

That is the harder part.

22. andrewv

Plot it ? Plot what where? I have to plot things on the picture?

23. andrewv

sorry if i sound like a total idiot :/ I didnt expect this lab class to be so difficult and the teacher isnt so great himself...

24. anonymous

Yea it says complete any letter labels.

25. anonymous

No problem.

26. anonymous

Opposition is 180 degrees, so it should be near the earth.

27. andrewv

Well that sucks...I have a second problem where i already filled out the box but i suppose i need to plot on that one as well...

28. anonymous

Which second problem?

29. anonymous

You know where to plot the opposition right? It is opposite to the conjunction.

30. andrewv

I got it (:

31. andrewv

32. anonymous

Yes! From B to earth to sun creates a 90 degree angle. west. From D to Earth to Sun creates a 120 degree angle east

33. anonymous

Nice job!

34. andrewv

Thank you for your help (:

35. anonymous

No problem!

36. andrewv

have a great day / night!

37. anonymous

You too! It is night for me. 9:54pm.

38. andrewv

it is 1am for me :/

39. andrewv

I wake up in 5 hours haha
