The Mass of the Van Allen Radiation Belts

In this van Allen Radiation Belts worksheet, students are given the formula for the field line of the Earth's inner magnetic field. Students use this equation to find the polar coordinates of a field line in the van Allen Belts. They also find the approximate volume of a particular region in the van Allen Belt using the equation for a torus. They complete the worksheet by finding the total mass of the van Allen Belts.
