6.53 .. Magnetar. On December 27 2004 astronomers observed the greatest flash of light ever recorded from outside the solar system. It came from the highly magnetic neutron star SGR 1806-20 (a magnetar). During 0.20 s this star released as much energy as our sun does in 250 000 years. If P is the average power output of our sun what was the average power output (in terms of P) of this magnetar?

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
