Earth's magnetic field is the magnetic field that extends from the Earth's interior to where it meets the solar wind, a stream of charged particles emanating from the Sun. Its magnitude at the Earth's surface ranges from 25 to 65 micro Tesla.

### What are the two poles located at?

• A.

Canadic Ocean & Off the cost of the Antarctica

• B.

Asia & Russia

• C.

None of the above

A. Canadic Ocean & Off the cost of the Antarctica
Explanation
The correct answer is Canadic Ocean & Off the cost of the Antarctica. The two poles referred to in the question are the North Pole and the South Pole. The North Pole is located in the Arctic Ocean, also known as the Canadic Ocean, while the South Pole is located on the continent of Antarctica.

### What is an magnetosphere?

• A.

The outer region of the earth's ionospHere, where the earth's magnetic field controls the motion of charged particles, as in the Van Allen belts.

• B.

I dont know

• C.

Who cares?

• D.

Its a belt

A. The outer region of the earth's ionospHere, where the earth's magnetic field controls the motion of charged particles, as in the Van Allen belts.
Explanation
The magnetosphere is the outer region of the earth's ionosphere where the earth's magnetic field controls the motion of charged particles, such as those found in the Van Allen belts. This region is crucial for protecting the earth from harmful solar radiation and charged particles by trapping them in these belts. It acts as a shield, preventing these particles from reaching the earth's surface and causing damage to our atmosphere and living organisms.

### The Earth Magnetic Field contains:

• A.

2 poles

• B.

Liquid iron

• C.

Its magnetic is shaped like a bar

• D.

None of the above

A. 2 poles
B. Liquid iron
C. Its magnetic is shaped like a bar
Explanation
The Earth's magnetic field contains two poles, namely the North Pole and the South Pole. It is generated by the movement of liquid iron in the Earth's outer core. The magnetic field is not shaped like a bar, but rather like a dipole, with magnetic field lines extending from the North Pole to the South Pole.

### Please write down what you think is the answer. What are the effects it has on  the earth?

Climate, The earth doesn't be stripped away, and it drags particles from the sun and to the earth
Explanation
The answer suggests that the effects of climate change on the earth are that it does not strip away the earth and it drags particles from the sun to the earth. However, the explanation is not clear or accurate. Climate change refers to long-term changes in temperature, precipitation, wind patterns, and other aspects of the earth's climate system. It is caused by human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and industrial processes. Climate change can have various impacts on the earth, including rising temperatures, melting ice caps, sea-level rise, extreme weather events, and changes in ecosystems.
