It has something to do with an enormous amount of hydrogen. So much, in fact that it begins to collapse under its own weight. This is an unfathomably large amount of gas. The gravity of itself crushes itself into itself (I am getting dizzy). So that the weak force is overcome and the nuclei of the hydrogen atoms start to crush together, then the string force is overcome and the mass in the center becomes a proton plasma. It begins to bubble up ...
Well here, watch this for about an hour.
When a sun's gravity forces it to collapse into itself, it's turns into a black hole. The sun doesn't do that, it doesn't have enough mass.
It doesn't. It is on welfare.
Nuclear fusion. Hydrogen molecules burn into helium. Heat is produced, light is produced. Because it weighs so much, it has it's own gravitational force that keep it spherical and attracts planets to orbit around it.
Dad lights his farts - ha, he is such a kidder! Alleluia!
it gets real hot,and then stays that way...silly
Burns hydrogen and helium for fuel through the process of fusion. Once it runs out of hydrogen and helium it starts to burn other elements (ie. Carbon, iron).
Well its a big hot ball of gas so basically a giant star and like stars how they shine at night well the sun shines in day
