    On a 2 week timetable: My timetable averages out at around 20/21hrs per week for lessons, and either 1.5h or 3h private study or "free" periods, depending on which week.

    1.5h per week for 'enrichment', as everyone seems to be calling it.

    I'm stuck with 24 hours of lessons per week across five subjects, leaving me with only two frees a week... although, one good thing is that I have Wednesdays off
    I am in for 22 hours and the days are ridiculous because I'm in till 5.15 tommorow - I only start at 12.15 though

    I'm pretty sure if you tried storing anything anywhere near the sun it wouldn't last very long, no matter in it!

    Oh yeah, I'm doing OCR Chemistry, OCR Biology, AQA Physics and I'm not sure what Maths. But I'll find out sometime

    But if you had to ignore the great temperatures. Is the core of the sun molten? If so can it be compressed to provide a gap for storage? Also is the core of the sun actually the most dense point, because i thought in nuclear fusion the elements slowly get heavier as you get closer to the center of a star? According to the wiki the Sun isn't actually solid at all :confused: Can you store stuff on the surface of the sun and because "the sun" is actually up to its gaseous layer or something that would still count as being inside.

    I need an answer, in volume, to the capacity :/ my teacher is mad.

    How do you manage to have 24 hours a week if you have a day off?

    I'm confused at why they would want you to know this, as of course it's not something that will ever need to be known or used!

    The sun is really just a massive ball of very condensed gas/plasma. The centre will certainly be the most dense part of it... I doubt you could compress anything inside it any more than it is, as it is already a perfect balance between gravity compressing it and the fusion pushing it back.

    To make things worse, you know what the 'stuff' going inside is? Mice (the teacher chose it). In this demented essay I have addressed the possibility of compressing the mice and possibly removing limbs to maximize capacity... what am I thinking xD

    You could just replace the dense plasma in the middle with, erm, dense mice, this way the gravitational pull will be intact, I'm not sure if the sun will still 'burn' though. You could always make an all new mice based sun Could you also argue that the high pressure, breaking up the atomic structure of the mice cells, would just leave the building blocks for all the mice and could technically equal just one supersized mouse?

    Oh and although they want a serious answer(s), it is merely just to get you thinking about theoretic physics, how there isn't a definite answer and it's mostly guesswork.

    That's quite tense. I'm doing Maths, Fm, Chem, Physics and History. Want to drop History though to free up some time to have a life.

    I hate that too! I only have lessons on Monday Period 4 and 5 so I want to stay at home for a bit (and I can still get on with work when I'm there cause it's easier to concentrate without people around.) Then at lunch time I'll go in to the lessons. Hopefully I will be able to do this next week - this week we still have to go for registration every day but after that they try and find a day that fits in with everyone's timetables. But because most of my form are doing different subjects to me, I can just imagine with my luck that we'll be going in early on Mondays! :rolleyes:

    Ugh, I honestly don't know what I'd do with all that time. Every day I have 2 frees and luckily, they are never straight after each other. This guy in my year had lessons 9-11 the other day and then had to wait until 3 to go home. :yucky:
