Students explore the relationship between magnetism and electricity to model how scientists determined that Jupiter's moon Europa has a subsurface ocean.

In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to compare the sizes of Mars landing areas, calculate the length of a year for a distant solar system object, measure the depth of the ocean from an airplane, and determine the diameter of a debris disk.
