The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It is a nearly perfect sphere of hot plasma, with an internal convective motion that generates a magnetic field via a dynamo process. It is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth.

Q2
A large rocky planet was formed from eight small rocky planets, each with radius R. Each of the small planets and the new large planet have the same density. The small rocky planets were initially so far apart that they didn't interact.
How many times as much energy would be required to blast the large planet apart as to blast all of the eight small planets individually apart?
(Consider that the energy required to blast a small planet of mass m and radius r apart is 3Gm25r, where G is a constant.)
