Radioactive nickel-56 (which decays to the most common isotope of iron) is the last element to be produced before the collapse of a supernova. That is why the iron was abundantly scattered into space after the supernova explosion.very hard 34% in a high-mass star preceding Sunin a high-mass star preceding Sun34%in the Sunin the Sun8%in the Earth's corein the Earth's core29%in the Earth's crustin the Earth's crust28%Created by: life-o-holic.

So it is a measure of the susceptibility of the element to the flow of the electric current. Siemens is the unit of electric conductance named after German inventor and industrialist Werner von Siemens, founder of the well known Siemens company.hard 41% 1Ω (ohm)1Ω (ohm)20%1S (siemens)1S (siemens)41%1H (henry)1H (henry)12%1T (tesla)1T (tesla)25%Created by: Paweł Kołodziejczyk.

Jupiter's moons, especially Io (spot on the left), are powerful sources of auroras on Jupiter. These arise from electric currents along field lines, generated by a dynamo mechanism due to the relative motion between the rotating planet and the moving moon.hard 42% volcanic peaksvolcanic peaks3%atmospheric stormsatmospheric storms23%Jupiter moonsJupiter moons42%multiple magnetic poles of Jupitermultiple magnetic poles of Jupiter30%Created by: globalquiz.org.
